Trainee Research Day at The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center

Each year, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are invited to submit their work during an interactive day that highlights the work of trainees. Fellows from across the Cancer Center are represented in this forum. Awards are given to the individuals whose posters are judged to be the most outstanding example of high impact work and excellence in presentation. The SKCCC Teaching and Mentoring Award is also presented to a SKCCC faculty member.
