12th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research

May 6 @ 8:00 am - May 9 @ 12:00 pm

The 12th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research (ASGCR 2024) will be held virtually from May 6 – 9, beginning at 8 a.m. and concluding at noon each day. The symposium will feature presentations on cancer research and control programs that address the global burden of cancer.

This year’s theme is Collaborating for Impact, and the objectives of the symposium are to: (1) create opportunities for researchers and program implementers from low-resource settings to share their work; (2) provide a venue for the global oncology research community to exchange information and identify potential areas for collaboration; and (3) share science-based initiatives that are reducing the burden of cancer in low-resource settings. In addition, the symposium will include a pre-conference session Early Career Investigator Day (ECID) on May 6. ECID is intended for early-career scientists interested in global cancer research.

The virtual symposium is organized through a collaboration with the US National Cancer Institute Center for Global Health (NCI/CGH), the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH), the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the African Organisation for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC), the American Society of Preventive Oncology (ASPO), the National Cancer Grid of India (NCG), and Red de Institutos e Instituciones Nacionales de Cáncer – Sociedad Latino Americana y del Caribe De Oncología Médica (RINC-SLACOM). Rutgers Global Health Institute core faculty member Kelly Kohler is a member of the planning committee.
