The 6th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research, sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH), and academic partners, will be held on March 15,2018, prior to the start of the 9th Annual CUGH Global Health Conference. The Symposium is an annual event started in 2013 that aims to promote the exchange of scientific findings, best practices, and innovations in global cancer research and control. In addition, Symposium participants work to identify potential geographic and scientific areas for collaboration and develop strategic priorities related to cancer research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Highly interactive discussions will cover a range of topics, foster network building, and be geared toward developing action items for advancing global cancer research and control. The Symposium consistently draws senior- and junior-level professionals from multiple sectors, providing a valuable combination of experience, enthusiasm, and varied perspectives to the discussions.
