Abstract Overview

The Canadian Cancer Research Conference provides an excellent opportunity to present research to the cancer community. Abstract submissions from the entire spectrum of research topics are welcome. Trainees (undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows) and new principal investigators are also encouraged to present their work.

The online abstract submission process will be bilingual. Abstract submissions will be accepted in both English and French. Abstracts will appear in the electronic abstract book in the language of submission, and posters may be prepared and presented orally in the presenter’s language of choice.
