Yale Cancer Center (YCC) will hold its Fifth Annual Trainee Colloquium virtually on Friday, July 15, 2022 from 8:30am - 1:15pm. This will be a forum for Yale trainees to highlight their research, exchange ideas, and initiate collaborations. We invite predoctoral MD, PhD, MD-PhD students, postdoctoral associates, postdoctoral fellows, residents, and clinical fellows engaging in cancer research to submit abstracts describing their work.

The colloquium will include presentations from trainees in the following four areas: 1) Basic Science Research and Bioinformatics, 2) Translational Research, 3) Clinical Research, 4) Population Science, Prevention and Outcomes Research. The Yale Cancer Center Education Committee will review all abstracts and make selections for oral presentations. Each presentation will be 10 minutes, and presenters will be notified by June 30, 2022. Four Research Excellence Prize recipients will be selected from among the oral presentations. Winners will be announced during the colloquium and each awardee will receive an award certificate and an award of $250.

We understand that your research progress may have been delayed due to the COVID-19 shutdown, and we encourage you to submit the data that you have. We will consider this important factor when we judge your work.
