DF/HCC Celebration of Early Career Investigators in Cancer Research

Early career investigators are a unique reservoir of new ideas, innovation, and excellence in cancer research. To celebrate this, we welcome you to join the 7th Annual DF/HCC Celebration of Early Investigators in Cancer Research. This half-day symposium will showcase the talent of early career investigators at the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC) who work in several areas of population science, including epidemiology, biostatistics, outcomes, diversity, and survivorship. We invite all members of the public to attend the event. We also invite students, post-docs, residents, clinical fellows, and early career investigators to submit abstracts for consideration as oral or poster presentations. We look forward to an exciting afternoon of discussion, sharing new discoveries, and building new collaborations. Lorelei Mucci, ScD (HSPH), Meir Stampfer, MD, DrPH (BWH), Giovanni Parmigiani, PhD (DFCI), Erica Feick (DFCI) and Sam Peisch (HSPH).
