The Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute CRTP Integrated Learning Session (ILS) will be held on Thursday 28 October from 10:00am-12:00pm ADT via videoconference
Integrated Learning Sessions consist of presentations from various cancer research perspectives to better understand and address a topic.
ILS sessions are mandatory for CRTP Trainees – please contact email@example.com if you are unable to attend. Trainees recognize the benefit of having supervisors in attendance at these sessions and we hope that all supervisors of CRTP trainees will attend as many sessions as possible.
