Please join us for the 2019 Case Comprehensive Cancer Center Annual Scientific Retreat! As you may know, this is one of the few times a year our entire center is able to enjoy the company of one another and collaborate.

The retreat will begin at 2:30 pm on Thursday, July 25 at the Tinkham Veale University Center with TED-style talks beginning at 5:00 pm from prominent Cleveland research leaders and open to all, no registration required. Following the talks will be a reception including cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres.

There will once again be poster presentations by students, post-docs and fellows on Thursday evening. Poster judging will take place at the beginning of the Thursday session with awards to be presented following the talks. Please encourage trainees, fellows and students to submit an abstract.

The retreat will continue with breakfast beginning at 7:45 am on Friday, July 26 at Corporate College East. The morning will feature a keynote address by Anil K. Rustgi, MD, Director of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center and leading cancer researcher of gastrointestinal tumors. Scientific presentations from cancer center members are scheduled throughout the day and are broken up into 5 thematic areas.

There will be a breakout session for each of the scientific programs to discuss new initiatives, collaborations and requests for cancer center support through research pilot project and shared resources. This includes a breakout for cancer center trainees to learn about resources available to them through the center.
