The Case Comprehensive Cancer Center is hosting its Annual Scientific Retreat July 22-23, 2021. July 22 will feature TED talks from prominent leaders from each of our partner institutions and an update from Cancer Center Director Stan Gerson, MD. July 23 will include a keynote presentation from Zihai Li, MD, PhD founding director of the Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology and the Klotz Chair in Cancer Research at The Ohio State University.
The retreat is open to members of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. Students, post-docs, and fellows may only attend if they present a poster.
All students, postdocs and fellows conducting cancer research are invited to submit abstracts for two opportunities to present their research during the retreat: 1) poster presentation and 2) oral presentation. Cancer Center leadership will review abstracts based on the relationship to cancer, novelty, significance of findings and clarity.
