Multidisciplinary Seminars

C-REP hosts a series of multi-disciplinary seminars on cancer research in multiple areas featuring world-class, experienced faculty members in the field of engineering, physics, bioinformatics, biostatistics, and social sciences/education in addition to traditional life sciences disciplines.

Four seminars are held per year with an informal "town hall" forum at the end of the lecture that will allow students to get answers to specific research and career-oriented questions.

Lunch with Cancer Researchers

This lunch series will increase interaction of undergraduate students with cancer researchers at various stages of their career from DLDCCC and UHCOP. Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students will share their "career path story" and will provide insight on what it takes to become a successful Ph.D. candidate or Post-doctoral level cancer researcher. These researchers will serve as mentors for C-REP participants.

Next Lunch: TBA
Watch Virtual Lunch from 10-22-20
