The 2021/22 Season of the Gynecologic Cancer Initiative Research Rounds has recently come to an end. This past season was comprised of a total of 13 Research Rounds, each led by incredible researchers presenting their work on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship of gynecologic cancers.
GCI Research Rounds have been designed to provide a forum for researchers, trainees, and staff to learn about the wide range of gynecologic cancer research projects taking place across British Columbia and the world. We are incredibly grateful to all those who presented, attended, and participated in the 2021/22 season of GCI Research Rounds.
The series has ended for the year but we will be back in September 2022.
