Markey Cancer Center Announces 2017 Research Day

Discover the latest advances in cancer research by submitting your abstracts and attending Markey Cancer Center Research Day on May 17, 2017.   

For the eighth consecutive year, the Singletary Center for the Arts will play host to Markey’s daylong event that showcases the work of cancer researchers from all disciplines at the University of Kentucky.  If you have notable work to share, we want to see it displayed during our poster sessions.  

Tony Hunter, PhD, The Salk Institute’s American Cancer Society Professor, Molecular and Cell Biology Laboratory and Renato Dulbecco Chair, will present the Susan B. Lester Memorial Lecture. 

Markey Cancer Center Director B. Mark Evers, MD, will present the “State of the Cancer Center Address.” 

Be looking for future announcements of our Faculty Oral Presentations, our Student/Junior Faculty Oral Presentation session and our Exhibit Hall.
