AACR Annual Meeting 2016

Dr. Schook and members of his lab are traveling to New Orleans for the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). This year's theme, "Delivering Cures Through Cancer Science," reinforces the inextricable link between research and advances in patient care. The meeting provides cancer researchers from across disciplines the opportunity to share critical updates, hear from the world's thought leaders in cancer research, and connect with other scholars from around the globe. There will be a number of presentations that include new data from cutting-edge clinical trials as well as the science behind the trials and implications for delivering improved care to patients.

Dr. Schook will chair an educational session on "Large Animal Models for Solid Tumor Oncology."  The session will review emerging technologies, biologic models, and preclinical research strategies in large animal cancer models.

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Kwame Darfour-Oduro, and Graduate Research Assistant, Arun Kumar De, will be presenting posters highlighting their research efforts to create a model for human hepatocellular carcinoma.
