Please join the cancer researchers of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), the West Cancer Center and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) at the Spring 2017 Cancer Research Conference. The conference will be held on Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at The Freeman Auditorium (930 Madison Ave., 3rd floor, Memphis, TN 38163) from 10:00 am – 3:30 pm. UTHSC, in partnership with the West Cancer Center, has organized this event to bring together our cancer researchers with those from UAMS, allowing them to share their research interests, and catalyze new collaborative partnerships. This year's conference will feature talks from cancer researchers at both universities as well as a poster presentation session.

If others in your group would like to attend the Conference, please have them register through the InfoReady Review website.

As part of your registration, you will be asked to respond to several questions regarding your research interests. The data you provide will allow us to create a secure, searchable database using Google Sheets, where cancer investigators from each campus can search for and view research profiles of conference attendees. Upon completion of your registration, you will receive an email confirmation that includes a link to the researcher database, along with directions on how to use it.
