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; when held in person, they are attended by principal investigators and their trainees in the New York region, and are intended to be viewed by anyone in the world with an internet connection.
