Department of Oncology's Research & Education Day Award Winners: Congratulations!

13th Annual Oncology Research & Education Day: Huge Success!

The Department of Oncology's 13th Annual Research & Education day was another great success. This annual event is an opportunity for scientists, clinicians, graduate students and Post-Doctoral fellows to share cancer research discoveries and promote cancer research collaboration and training. There were 275 registrants and 55 PEL (Partners in Experiential Learning) students at the event.

We hope you had a chance to meet Dr. Elaine R. Mardis, guest speaker, who made the trip to London from McDonnell Genome Institute at Washington University to attend this year's R&E Day at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn on Friday, June 17, 2016. Thank you Dr. Mardis for delivering an outstanding lecture!
