RAS Events

A key feature of the RAS Initiative’s ‘hub-and-spokes' model is to serve as an organizing force within the RAS community, promoting the exchange of information and bringing together leaders in the field to help quicken the pace of discovery. In efforts to achieve this aim, The RAS Initiative regularly hosts a symposium and participates in seminars, workshops, and conferences.

Upcoming Events

Past Events

RAS Initiative Symposiums

The first RAS Initiative Symposium, held on December 15-16, 2015, attracted approximately 550 researchers to the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR). The primary objective of this interactive forum was to mobilize the cancer research community towards finding therapeutic solutions to RAS-driven cancers. Since then, subsequent meetings have drawn thousands of researchers from government, industry, and academic institutions worldwide to discuss topics ranging from structural biology to novel therapeutic approaches. The meetings feature invited presentations, short presentations from selected abstracts, and poster presentations.

Other Seminars, Workshops, and Conferences

The following events engaged the wider community in tackling targeted questions in RAS biology, and shared knowledge acquired by our diverse team of scientists.
