The AACR Workshop on Integrative Molecular Epidemiology: Bridging Cancer Biology and Precision Medicine is a five-day workshop designed by Course Directors Drs. Thomas Sellers, Lorelei Mucci, and Peter Kraft along with top faculty to accelerate the training of the next generation of cancer researchers in the integration of biology and epidemiology. The AACR is pleased to offer it again this year. This year’s workshop will take place July 15-19, 2019 at the Westin Copley Place Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. The workshop is primarily targeted toward molecular epidemiologists, but the materials are appropriate for geneticists, statisticians, bioinformaticians, molecular biologists, physician scientists, and others who have completed basic course work in epidemiology. We have assembled an expert team of faculty to teach this workshop in a collaborative and interactive format.
