These seminars are an on-going collaboration between CRC & cancer researchers at Cornell. The presentations are in lay language and questions are encouraged. Everyone is welcome! For more info &/or to be added to the distribution list for weekly reminders, email Bob Riter.

Please visit our Website  & Facebook page.

There are sections targeted to community members and students, and one that encourages the development of partnerships in other communities.

There’s also a twitter feed that highlights news that we think will be of interest to cancer researchers and the patient community.

We”ll continue to add new content. In particular, we want to add profiles of many of our participants – both trainees and community members.
