Some of your comments were:
- I enjoyed the oral presentations and how they linked basic research scientists with clinicians and social/behavioral scientists. The conference was very organized and well-assembled.
- Very organized, all the events ran smoothly and there was very little discrepancy between the outlined schedule and the actual events. Interesting to get a global perspective on cancer research from sociological studies all the way to pure sciences.
- Enjoyed the ability to meet and interact with colleagues at other Atlantic institutions.
- Enjoyed the breadth of talks
- How broad the scope of the conference was. There were so many interestingposters and they varied greatly. It's nice to see all different kinds of researchbeing equally supported.
- Thank you to BHCRI for giving my research team a great opportunity for learning all about on-going cancer research in the Atlantic Canada. More importantly, it was the ideal place for net-working and identifying potential research collaborations.
