Please join us for the fourth annual Jacki and Bruce Barron Cancer Research Scholars’ Program Symposium, which has been made possible through the leadership and
generous support of The Harvey L. Miller Family Foundation. City of Hope is proud to again be hosting this international gathering of world-renowned scientists whose lives are dedicated to advancing novel ways to prevent and cure cancer.
The Jacki and Bruce Barron Cancer Research Scholars’ Program is the result of an ongoing collaboration between City of Hope and the Israel Cancer Research Fund, bringing together scientists at City of Hope with their counterparts at distinguished institutions throughout Israel. Working together, the investigators funded by this initiative are conducting innovative research into more effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment strategies for patients with cancer around the world. Some of the diverse research projects funded focus on a specific type of cancer including leukemia, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer and lung cancer — while other studies have the potential to impact multiple cancers. We are proud of the research that is taking place and value the spirit of international collaboration demonstrated by the investigators who you will hear from today.
This symposium brings together some of the most promising scientific minds in cancer research to facilitate a discussion around international collaborative cancer research and how we are approaching some of the most pressing questions about cancer. Through a series of panel discussions on relevant topics in cancer research, such as immunotherapeutics and cancer cause and prevention, our teams will share novel accomplishments being made through the program to advance our understanding, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
