Physical Sciences in Oncology Network Investigators Meeting

ALERT: Abstract deadline is March 7.
Registration and Hotel room block deadline is March 14.


On behalf of the National Cancer Institute's (NCI), Office of Physical Sciences – Oncology, we are pleased to invite you to our Second Annual Physical Sciences – Oncology Centers (PS-OCs) Network Investigators’ Meeting, April 10-12, 2011 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine in La Jolla, California. As part of the Physical Sciences in Oncology Initiative, the PS-OC Network brings cross-disciplinary teams together to foster the development of innovative ideas and new fields of study that converge perspectives and approaches of physical sciences and engineering with cancer biology and clinical oncology.

We welcome all PS-OC contributors, ranging from principal investigators to postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, to participate in the upcoming meeting. This event will highlight scientific efforts within the PS-OC Network, promote collaborations, and provide a venue for working group discussions that will explore the physical laws and principles that shape and govern the emergence and behavior of cancer at all scales. With an eye on the future, we will also host tutorial sessions/training groups to provide education and guidance to the next generation of young scientists in the many disciplines that contribute to the PS-OCs.

We are looking forward to your participation in this important event.
