The Cancer Research Committee is sponsoring this exciting symposium featuring five speakers whose research greatly impacts our understanding of the biology, clinical management, or prevention of cancer. Although orientation of the symposium will be directed toward the cancer problem, the material discussed at the symposium will likely be of great interest to individuals working in areas of molecular and cell biology, biochemistry and immunology, as well as in other clinical fields. Attendance is, therefore, encouraged from all University of Michigan faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students who have interest in the topics being discussed at the symposium.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
