Purpose

To offer state-of-the-art knowledge on advances in oncological research and care, including new clinical and laboratory investigations, techniques, and practices, as well as to facilitate new initiatives in translational and clinical research in oncology at UVA, the Cancer Center has created a seminar series that will be held every Friday.

Format

The series will feature invited speakers on various relevant subjects, faculty recruits of oncology specialties, and UVA faculty with expertise in selected topics related to cancer.  The series will also feature combined presentations given by UVA clinical research fellows of the various oncology divisions (such as Hematology-Oncology, Gynecological Oncology, and Surgical Oncology) and laboratory faculty of their choosing. These latter sessions will be devoted to discussions of current clinical practices for a specific disease or type of treatment under consideration, strengths and weaknesses of the approaches, and new therapies on the horizon, as well as molecular actions of new drugs and their targets.

Goals

The goals of the theme-based approach are to focus on a single organ site, type of cancer, or type of therapy, to explore the limits of our collective knowledge about these topics, and to devise new research projects or modify existing ones that will address some of the critical issues raised in the discussions.
