Annual Cancer CoursesPast Event

30th Annual Short Course on Experimental Models of Human Cancer - Virtual Event

This virtual event will be presented through a combination of on-demand lectures, live panel discussions, virtual workshops, and Q&A sessions. Registration includes 24/7 access to course materials and recordings until October 31.

The annual Cancer Short Course remains the signature cancer training program at JAX. 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.

Even though I have years of experience in cancer research, I still managed to learn an amazing amount in this course. It featured world class researchers giving engaging talks across wide ranging aspects of cancer, and I continue to come back to the lectures available to participants. Would definitely recommend.

Alan Chramiec, Graduate Student Researcher

The course provided some fantastic insight for someone primarily working in a core facility position and unfamiliar with many of the advances on the research side. In addition, hearing some of the benefits and drawbacks to different methods (I.E. flow cytometry vs imaging for dendritic cells) allows me to provide more informed suggestions to core users when they have a particular scientific question. The live discussions between knowledgeable scientists (both agreements and disagreements) gave useful insights into the current state of cutting edge cancer research. All in all, I greatly appreciate that the course was online this year, as I would not have been able to attend in person!

Michael S. Nelson

The short course included both the knowledge, technology and the defining point of the research and the most resent studies in the area. The workshops operated in this short course were very useful and covering the most hottest technology in the field, such as RNAseq. The panel discussions really helped to view the research and topic in different way and a great training on critical thinking. I believe most of the audience, just like me, could get more inspiration from this course. I am glad that one of my mentors (expert in cancer research and animal model) recommended this course to us. I highly recommend this course.
