On Saturday, November 19, 2016, the Windsor Cancer Research Group (WCRG) hosted its 3rd Biennial International Cancer Research Conference at Caesars Windsor. The conference was attended by over 150 scientists, clinicians, nurses, research associates, researchers, administrators, and students who came together from Windsor-Essex, our neighbouring communities of London and Michigan, and other Canadian researchers to share their latest research findings.
The conference featured two keynote speakers, Dr. Elizabeth Eisenhauer from Queen’s University and Kingston General Hospital (Kingston, ON) and Dr. Shoukat Dedhar from the University of British Columbia and the BC Cancer Agency (Vancouver, BC). The conference also included 14 oral presentations, 40 poster presentations, and 15 sponsors. The organization and execution of the conference was made possible by an amazing group of student volunteers who contributed greatly to its success. With the generous support of the University of Windsor’s Alumni Association, three top poster awards were given. The Association’s President, Jean Wright, joined us to present the awards to Chris Hillman (Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry), Freda Qi (Western University), and Bre-Anne Fifield (University of Windsor).
