The annual Cancer Short Course remains the signature cancer training program at JAX and is strategically aligned with the ongoing Workshop on Techniques in Modeling Human Cancer in Mice. The program purposefully provides a broad survey of the cancer research and experimental modeling from systems and computational genetics, to the tumor microenvironment and tumor progression, to inflammation and immunotherapy.
Special pricing is available for virtual participation, including student and scholarship reductions. See "Registration" section below.
Registration is Open
Aug 17 - 28
Unlike a semester-long graduate course or an academic seminar series spread across a full year or more, the Cancer Short Course delivers a large amount of cutting-edge learning material into an intensive training period. The program combines seminars from leaders in cancer genetics, cancer cell biology, emerging animal models of human cancers, cancer immunology and therapy, with workshop-based learning opportunities including computational workshops. The program will be presented through a combination of on-demand lectures enhanced by live panel discussions, virtual workshops and Q&A sessions, and interactive poster sessions. Over nine days, participants will interact directly with faculty, JAX Cancer Center scientists, patient advocates and medical oncologists to gain broad exposure and knowledge as it relates to human cancer.
The faculty speakers for the 2020 schedule are listed below, and the final schedule will be posted shortly.
