2nd UCT Mainz Science Day

2nd UCT Mainz Science Day

The UCT Science Day aims at providing a platform to enhance the scientific exchange between clinicians, basic scientists, postdocs and students involved in cancer research at the UCT, the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, IMB, TRON and other companies and research institutions in/ and around Mainz.   

This year the UCT Science Day will start with a keynote lecture on Wednesday evening,  followed by presentations of scientific projects the next day.

With the keynote lecture, the UCT Science Day will be directly linked to the TransMed Science Day on September 18 taking place at the same location.

As successfully initiated last year, young investigators as well as established researchers, who are working in the different Core Research Areas of the UCT ("Immunotherapy" - "Genetic Instability & Resistance" - "Epidemiology & Outcome Research" -  "Drug Delivery") will have the opportunity to present their own research (either in selected talks or as a poster) to the scientific community. Additionally, we want to present new activities regarding our Core Facilities and, as a highlight, a special session on translational medicine/precision oncology.

We kindly ask you to submit your abstracts (as a word file) using the provided abstract form (attached to this mail). All posters and talks will be evaluated during the meeting and the best abstracts will be awarded at the end of the event. 

Please send the abstract form to uct-science@uct-mainz.de until June 15th, 2019. Our Scientific Committee will review the abstracts and select oral presentations for the different sessions. You will be informed about the form of your presentation including material for preparation until mid-July. Everyone is invited to submit an abstract (including Master students and medical PhD students!)
