Technologies in Brain Cancer Challenge

DATE: Friday, December 03, 2021—Saturday, December 04, 2021 TIME: 12:00 pm—2:00 pm LOCATION: NCRC, B10 Research Auditorium

We hope that you will be able to join us for this exciting Challenge on Technologies in Brain Cancer, co-hosted by the Biointerfaces Institute and the BioInnovations in Brain Cancer on December 3 and 4 at the North Campus Research Complex.

The goal of this 2-day Challenge is to bring together clinicians, scientists and engineers to explore new ideas and catalyze interdisciplinary collaborative research to address challenges in brain cancer therapy. The Challenge will kick off on Friday afternoon and include a series of scientific talks (open to all UM individuals), followed by an evening reception and Saturday breakout sessions (both limited to UM Faculty and senior researchers) to identify clinical challenges and technological opportunities relevant to these areas.

Seed funds will be available for collaborative grant proposals that emerge from the Challenge. The seed fund competition is only open to UM Faculty Challenge participants. We will be sending a more detailed schedule soon and we look forward to seeing you on December 3 and 4!
