Next Generation Researchers in Cancer Cachexia
At the 4th Cancer Cachexia Conference in 2018, a new session was added to feature promising Next Generation Cancer Cachexia Researchers. Photo below show the 6 Next Gen speakers from our 2018 meeting. These speakers were provided travel awards, which included complimentary registrations for our current 2020 conference to ensure the next generation of cancer cachexia researchers.
Based on favorable reviews that we received following our 2018 conference, we are pleased to feature this session again in 2020 and welcome abstract submissions for this special designation. In this session, we will feature the most qualified applicants encompassing a diverse range of topics ranging from basic to clinical research. Six applicants will selected for 10 minute oral presentations with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Efforts will be made to ensure that selected speakers are balanced by research type (basic, translational, clinical). Travel awards will be provided to those selected to be applied as a complimentary registration for our 2021 conference in Montreal, Canada.
