OnTuesday 30 October, 2018 we organize the Erasmus MC Cancer Institute Research Day. This time, the format will be different than previous years.

The day is organized by MolMed and the Erasmus MC Cancer Institute. The goal of this Research Day is to connect the different departments/ACES within the Erasmus MC Cancer Institute and to inform each other of the projects we are working on, whether they are basic, translational or patient-oriented research. In the presentations of internal speaker, we would like to see the collaboration between the various departments/ACEs within the Erasmus MC Cancer Institute and the collaboration with external partners.

The morning will be devoted to these short presentations from the Cancer Institute, like the last years. But our Visiting professor on behalf of the Daniel den Hoed Stichting, prof.dr. Roel Verhaak (professor and associate director of computational biology, The Jackson Laboratory, Farmington, CT, USA; former Erasmus MC) will organize and chair the afternoon. He invited already four speakers. See below a short description of his backgrounds. He will organize this half day together with Pim French and Peter Sillevis Smitt, who invited him.

About 12 speakers will be able to present their work. There will be a lunch break from 12.30 - 13.15 hours. The location of all activities is Erasmus MC, Ae 4.06.
