BU-BMC Cancer Seminar Series


The Cancer Center sponsors a monthly seminar series that serves to highlight the basic, clinical, and translational cancer research being undertaken at Boston University. The goal of this seminar series is to promote interactions and provide an effective platform for the exchange of ideas and technologies. Beginning in 2016, seminars will incorporate visiting professors from outside of Boston University that are at the forefront of cancer research allowing us to enrich our training environment and enhance communications with the cancer community at large.
