Research Rounds

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 12-1 pm PST on Zoom.
