The Cancéropôle GSO is glad to announce the third edition of its scientific event devoted to young researchers, to be held from the 30th of november to the 1st of December 2015
This 2-day coaching event will involve presentation and discussion of recent findings and future projects in the scope of Signaling in Cancer. The format of the meeting (focused scientific research themes, less than 40 participants, full pension in an isolated – yet beautiful – place) is deliberately designed to foster exchanges and communication between junior and senior scientists and strengthen research networks between the Great Southwest labs.
