Annual Cancer Prevention Fellows' Scientific Symposium
In September 2002, the CPFP held its First Annual Cancer Prevention Fellows' Scientific Symposium. This inaugural event set the stage for the subsequent yearly symposia held each fall just prior to the start of the Cancer Prevention and Control Colloquia Series. The Symposium is an occasion to bring together the senior fellows, those fellows who have recently arrived at the NCI, and the CPFP staff for a day of scientific exchange in the area of cancer prevention. The event provides an opportunity for fellows to discuss their projects, ideas, and potential future collaborations. Fellows spearhead the planning of the Symposium, including the development of the program agenda and special workshops, and the selection of invited speakers.
