Join us on April 8, 2016 in San Francisco for the 4th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research, also known as "Cancer Research Day" (see flyer below). This event is co-hosted by:
- the National Cancer Institute (NCI)
- Stanford University
- University of California San Francisco (UCSF)
- Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH)
and is in conjunction with the 7th Annual CUGH Global Health Conference.
The Symposium is an annual event started in 2013 that aims to promote the exchange of scientific findings, best practices, and innovations in global cancer research. In addition, Symposium participants work to identify potential geographic and scientific areas for collaboration, and to develop strategic priorities related to cancer research focused on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Highly interactive discussions will cover a range of topics, foster network building, and be geared toward developing action items for advancing global cancer research priorities. The Symposium consistently draws quality senior- and junior-level professionals from multiple sectors, providing a valuable combination of experience, enthusiasm and varied perspectives to the discussions.
At the Symposium, the Stanford team will present The Opioid Atlas: an interactive tool for exploring and visualizing opioid consumption around the world from 1989-2013, based on data from the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB). The Atlas was created by Stanford Stats for Good in collaboration with GO.
See you in San Francisco!
