The University of Arizona Cancer Center is now accepting proposed abstracts for consideration for presentation at the Third Annual UACC Spring Scientific Retreat, which will be held April 21, 2017. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, Dec. 20.
This year’s Keynote Speaker will be:
Dean W. Felsher, MD, PhD
Professor of Medicine (Oncology) and Pathology, Stanford University School of Medicine
Dr. Felsher studies how oncogenes initiate and sustain tumorigenesis. He has developed model systems whereby he can conditionally activate oncogenes in normal human and mouse cells in tissue culture or in specific tissues of transgenic mice. In particular using the tetracycline regulatory system, He has generated a conditional model system for MYC-induced tumors. He has shown that cancers caused by the conditional over-expression of the MYC proto-oncogene regress with its inactivation. Thus, even though cancer is a multi-step process, the inactivation of one oncogene can be sufficient to induce tumor regression.
Abstracts must be submitted as a WORD document. A template is attached (click here to view). Please format your abstract to match this template.
