This is the 6th year for the symposium, created to inspire new thinking and innovative research around the shared goal of better understanding and treating cancer. “By convening a distinguished group to talk possibilities, discoveries and the research behind both, we get one step closer to better health care for those diagnosed with cancer,” said Ted Giovanis, founder and president of JKTG Foundation.
“The Foundation strongly believes in the power of collaboration and events such as this give an opportunity for traditionally siloed research to creatively question traditional thinking and transform how we diagnose and treat cancer.”
Sponsored by the JKTG Foundation, the event is supported the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health.
