We are very excited to announce that the EGFR Resisters will be holding our first Research Summit in collaboration with CEC Oncology, thanks to an independent educational grant from AstraZeneca. We are currently inviting Young Investigators (Junior Faculty or Fellows) in the EGFR lung cancer space to submit abstracts to us by August 12th for selection to participate in the Summit.
Knowledge leaders in the EGFR lung cancer community will help us with abstract selection, mentoring of the Young Investigators and judging of the live finalist presentations in Chicago, including Dr. Lecia Sequist of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Dr. Mary Jo Fidler of Rush University in Chicago, Dr. Helena Yu of Memorial Sloan Kettering in NY, Dr. Zosia Piotrowka of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, and Dr. Trever Bivona of UCSF in San Francisco.
Top research ideas will receive grants, including a grand prize of $10,000 to the recipient of the EGFR Resisters Distinguished Young Investigator Award. Please read more about this exciting Summit and help us spread the word by sharing the website with any lung cancer Young Investigators you may know!
