EA recently held its annual Young Investigator Symposium where eight early-career investigators presented their research projects. The symposium is a professional mentoring event for those engaged in clinical, translational, imaging, or basic cancer research, or in noncancer related research that has application to cancer biology, prevention, screening, diagnosis, imaging, or treatment.
Two presenters were selected for awards of distinction, taking into consideration the merit of their research, quality of the presentation delivery, command of the topic, and ability to respond to related questions. The recipients of the awards are Samilia Obeng-Gyasi, MD, MPH (Indiana University), whose work was recently accepted for a poster presentation at the 2019 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, for clinical research and Charlie Kuang, MD, PhD (University of Pittsburgh) for translational research.
All 2019 presenters are posted on ecog-acrin.org, along with a full description of the program and eligibility requirements.
