Cancer Research Seminar Series

Questions? Contact Us

The Seminar Series is designed to offer state-of-the-art knowledge on advances in oncological research and care, including new clinical and laboratory investigations, techniques, and practices, as well as to facilitate new initiatives in translational and clinical research in oncology at UVA. The seminars are held every Friday, during the fall and spring semesters of the academic year.

Presented by UVA Cancer Center, this interdisciplinary seminar series provides a venue for basic-science and clinical faculty to hear about cutting-edge work in all areas of cancer. The series features invited speakers on various relevant subjects, and UVA faculty with expertise in selected topics related to cancer.

Speakers in our series represent the major research programs in the UVA Cancer Center. Additionally, UVA Oncology Fellows and PhD trainees supported by UVA’s Cancer Training Grant have an opportunity to host speakers.

The series is not offered for CME credit (unless otherwise noted).

If you would like to host a speaker, contact Roger Abounader, MD, PhD.

Update: Fall 2020

We're planning to do 11 talks this fall, but given the COVID-19 situation, they will be virtual via Zoom. Lectures will be on Fridays at 12:30 p.m. EST. The speakers will also meet with select faculty and students via Zoom on the day of the seminar. 

We may offer speakers the opportunity to visit and speak in person if the coronavirus situation permits it. The offer will be made no later than one month before the seminar. Speakers will be free to accept the in-person talk offer or uphold the Zoom approach.
