New York Cancer Genomics Research Network Meeting

To advance collaborative efforts on cancer genomics, the New York Genome Center (NYGC) hosts meetings on the first Tuesday of every month to bring together leading cancer researchers, clinicians and postdocs from the NYGC’s Institutional Founding Members and other key academic institutions.

Discussion and Q&A will take place after each speaker presents.

These meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month; are attended, when held in person, by principal investigators in the New York region and their trainees; and are intended to be viewed by anyone in the world with an internet connection.
