25th Annual Trainee Research Day

On Tuesday, October 13, Fox Chase Cancer Center will proudly host Trainee Research Day, an annual, all-day scientific event designed to foster a sense of community and collaboration between the Institution’s five research programs and seven clinical departments. This year’s event will be held virtually through online platforms Zoom and Discord, and is expected to attract nearly 150 research and clinical professionals from Fox Chase Cancer Center and throughout the region.

The postdoc-led organizing committee has combined cutting-edge keynote addresses and student presentations with allocated time for networking, product showcase opportunity, and career advancement opportunities. Support from donors and friends in the community allows us the opportunity to host events like Research Day, and we hope you will consider partnering with us through one of the numerous exhibition opportunities in the flyer below.
