Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

12th UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center Industry/Academia Translational Oncology Symposium

Posted on Apr 6, 2015 5:00:12 AM

Symposium - La Jolla, CA, United States
Industry Relations at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, a NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, builds relationships for collaborative translational oncology projects. With the power of industry/academia collaboration, the lead time and enormous costs of cancer therapy development are significantly reduced, overcoming numerous translational gaps that often cause clinical trials to fail. Industry Relations unifies the efforts of the sciences within cancer research to better stratify patients according to their biomarker profiles, reducing toxicity, improving drug development efficiency, minimizing extraneous costs, and meeting patients' specific needs quickly.

Industry Relations annually organizes the Industry/Academia Translational Oncology Symposium - a unique forum where distinguished investigators, scientists, and clinicians join top industry decision-makers to discuss the latest breakthroughs in translational oncology research. Talks include personalized medicine, targeted therapy discoveries, collaborative clinical trials paradigms, and case studies of previous successful collaborative projects. An interactive panel session comprised of industry and academia panelists and the concluding networking reception allow for further dialogue of ideas and the fostering of collaborative relationships.
