CCR 20th Anniversary Seminar Series

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021 at 12:00pm-1:00pm

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Center for Cancer Research (CCR) and the 50th Anniversary of the National Cancer Act of 1971, which established the current structure of the NCI. As a result, the Fellows and Young Investigators Committee (CCR-FYI) is hosting a virtual seminar series to highlight the current work of former fellows from the CCR. Each seminar will host two speakers consisting of 25-minute research presentations followed by questions and answers. Also, the speakers will host a virtual coffee hour after the presentations to continue the conversation.

Speakers:

Brittany Flowers, A former CCR post-baccalaureate fellow and current graduate student at Stanford University School of Medicine.

Dr. Meera Murgai, A former CCR post-doctoral fellow and current Stadtman Tenure Track Investigator in the Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Genetics at the NCI.
