2016 Off-Cycle Bridge Project RFA Informational Session

Address to event

Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, Room 76-156
500 Main Street,
Cambridge, MA 02139

The Koch Institute at MIT & Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center invite you to a special 2016 Bridge Project Workshop on July 12, 2016.

Tyler Jacks, PhD (Koch) and David Livingston, MD (DFCI) will announce details of a special Bridge Project RFA for pediatric brain tumor research (with a preference for pediatric glioma), followed by presentations by clinicians and faculty actively working in this area of research and/or clinical care.

It is strongly encouraged that anyone interested in applying for this opportunity attend the event. During the workshop, updates and tips will be shared for the upcoming RFA (submission deadline September 2, 2016, view the RFA here), which may be critical for your application. Immediately following the workshop, there will be a networking reception.

The Bridge Project brings together bioengineers, advanced cancer scientists, and clinical oncologists to solve today's most challenging problems in cancer research and care. The Bridge Project is designed to reach beyond existing individual networks to establish new ties between unmet clinical needs and technological solutions that have not traditionally been connected.

We hope you can join us for this exciting day of interdisciplinary dialogue about pediatric brain tumors.
