Research Rounds

The Gynecologic Cancer Initiative Research Rounds featured researchers working on accelerating transformative research on prevention, treatment and survivorship of gynecologic cancers. The goal of these research rounds was to provide a forum for researchers, trainees and staff to learn about the range of different gynecologic cancer research projects happening across British Columbia. The Fall 2021 series will start October 1, 2021 bi-weekly on Fridays from 12-1 pm PST on Zoom.
