We are thrilled to invite you to our Third Annual Project Next Symposium!

This innovative event will be hosted by the Breast and Gynecologic Cancers Research Advocate Committee. This symposium provides an opportunity for the next generation of scientists and clinicians to present their work and highlights the value of patient advocates.

Last year’s symposium attracted more than 50 attendees with diverse expertise and backgrounds. This year, we are excited to announce the symposium’s keynote speaker, Lisa Barroilhet, MD, MS,—a clinical associate professor and director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology and Clinical Research at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. 

Our symposium will be held on Friday, March 29 from 1–5:30 pm at Huntsman Cancer Institute’s Research South auditorium. It will feature six oral presentations and a series of three-minute lightning talks on breast and gynecologic cancer research from graduate students, postdocs, staff scientists, and medical fellows. Registration is not required, but we encourage you to participate!

We look forward to seeing you at the symposium,
