11th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research (Overview)

Overview

The 11th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research (ASGCR) will be held virtually April 4, 2023 – April 6, 2023 as a satellite meeting to the 14th Annual Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) Global Health Conference. The Symposium is organized through a collaboration with the US National Cancer Institute Center for Global Health; CUGH; the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO); the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR); the African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC); the American Society of Preventive Oncology (ASPO); and Red de Institutos e Instituciones Nacionales de Cáncer – Sociedad Latino Americana y del Caribe De Oncología Médica (RINC-SLACOM).

The theme of the 11th ASGCR is “Closing the Research-to-Implementation Gap” and the objectives of this virtual Symposium are to: (1) provide a venue for the global oncology research community to exchange information and identify potential areas for collaboration; (2) develop strategic priorities for advancing the field of global oncology; (3) share initiatives that are reducing the burden of cancer in low resource settings; and 4) create opportunities for researchers and program implementers from low resource settings to present their work.
