As part of our outreach and education component of USC PSOC, we are hosting a ThinkTank meeting at the Banbury Conference Center, Cold Springs Harbor, NY, July 14-16, 2013. The goal of this ThinkTank workshop is to both identify critical challenges in oncology and to evaluate the potential of innovative approaches for solving them. Noting that this area is incredibly new, part of our objective will be to give junior investigators (i.e., assistant professors and post-docs) an opportunity to work with more senior investigators and get direct mentorship on how to overcome the challenges associated with working in this highly interdisciplinary field.
If you are interested this rare opportunity to work with senior investigators in discussing critical challenges in oncology and to evaluate potential innovative approaches for solving these challenges, then submit your application by Monday, April 29, 2013 for consideration.
Depending upon the number of responses received, we may fund between 5-10 junior investigators to attend this workshop. Attendance is by invitation only so be sure to submit your application by close of business (5:00 p.m., PST), on Monday, April 29, 2013 directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected participants will receive a confirmation e-mail along with additional travel information.
Application guidelines are detailed here. Please feel free to forward this post to anyone you know who meets the criteria and would like to be considered.
