The Gynecologic Cancer Initiative Research Rounds features researchers working on accelerating transformative research on prevention, treatment and survivorship of gynecologic cancers. The goal of these research rounds is to provide a forum for researchers, trainees and staff to learn about the range of different gynecologic cancer research projects happening across British Columbia. This series will be held every other Friday from 2-3pm on Zoom.

The first speaker for the GCI Research Rounds is Dr. Shyh-Dar Li. Dr. Shyh-Dar Li received his PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
