CIBERONC, a thematic area of cancer of CIBER founded in 2017, is an initiative to promote the collaboration of cancer researchers at national level. CIBERONC consists of 50 research groups that work in one of the six different research programs: Gastrointestinal Tumours, Breast Cancer, Respiratory Tract Tumours, Haematological Tumours, Low Prevalence Tumours and Mechanisms of tumour progression. The creation of this area represents a great opportunity to integrate basic and translational research into a clinical reality.
Since 2018 we have been organizing the CIBERONC Young Researchers Meetings in order to disseminate and discuss the work of our young researchers through oral communications and posters while interacting with the rest of our research community. This year 2020, for the first time, the meeting will be held online on December 14th and 15th. We will have three round tables with guests specialized in topics chosen by our attendees such as women in science, mental health during PhD and future perspectives after PhD. We will also have a plenary lecture with a recognized guest of honor who will update us on his field of study. Finally, we will award prizes for the best predoctoral and postdoctoral oral communications as well as the best poster.
The organizing committee consists of 7 members: 6 young researchers belonging to each of the research programs and a coordinator from CIBERONC.
We are looking forward to “seeing” you here!
