Objective: To educate scientists and engineers about key concepts in clinical cancer care, including current controversies and areas of need. The goal of the conference is to provide a basis of knowledge to inspire physical and engineering scientists to work together with cancer researchers and clinicians to advance our understanding of cancer and to develop diagnostic, therapeutic and imaging tools. No background in cancer biology is assumed. The course is appropriate for faculty members, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars in physics, chemistry, biomedical and engineering.

We had 100 attendees in 2011 and 236 attendees in 2012 - and the room only holds 250 so register early this year!

Please join us again this year even if you came in 2011 and 2012 for our new speakers and topics!

-New speakers: Dr. Keith Lillemoe, Dr. Steven Libutti, Dr. Chandrajit Raut, Dr. Gerard Doherty, Dr. Stephanie Lee, Dr. Michael O'Brien
-New topics: Pancreatic Cancer, Familial Cancers, Pathology in Cancer, Targeted Cancer Therapy and New Agent Development, Thyroid Cancer, and Ovarian Cancer
-New extended poster session – starts Monday with a reception!
-New oral session - open to attendees - get a chance to tell people about what you do!

...and of course a few of your favorites will be back!
