Frontiers in Tumor Biology

To faculty, postdocs and students in MCB:

On Tuesday March 27 the Division of Cell and Development Biology and the UCB Stem Cell Center will be co-sponsoring a one-day symposium on "Frontiers in Tumor Biology".

We have a great lineup of speakers and you can download a pdf poster advertising the meeting here.

Attendance at the symposium is free but because we'll be providing refreshments at the breaks and post-symposium reception we'd like to get an idea of attendance. If you are planning to attend (part or all) of the meeting please register on the symposium website (

Thanks and looking forward to seeing you at the meeting.
