Cancer Care for Engineers and Scientists
BU’s Cancer Care for Engineers and Scientists (CCES) conference was developed 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 conference is appropriate for faculty members, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars in physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering.
CCES was reorganized and returns with a new format and topics on January 14, 2016, as 2016 New Directions in Cancer Care for Nonspecialists, sponsored by Boston University’s Center for Future Technologies in Cancer Care (CFTCC). The focus in 2016 is immunotherapy and resistance to therapy. Registration is free and a full agenda is available here.
