Scientific Events

1. Seminars: Frontiers in Cancer Research is the GCI's major series of lectures featuring speakers from around the world who are leaders in diverse fields of cancer research. GCI trainees have the opportunity to meet and interact with the speakers during their visit. Please contact Daniel Caron (daniel.caron2 [at] for more information.


2. Research Day: Research Day is a full-day event held at the Goodman Cancer Institute to give trainees the opportunity to present their work to their peers as well as GCI Faculty and the broader scientific community. This highly interactive event is an occasion for postdoctoral fellows and graduate students working in various fields of cancer research to gain presentation skills, give and receive important feedback and form new collaborations that help their work advance and build a strong sense of community at the Institute. Guest speakers invited by the Goodman Cancer Institute Students’ Society present a keynote lecture and participate in discussions with trainees.


3. The Spotlight Seminar series: Every Friday, the GCI community, its friends and collaborators gather informally in the Rosalind Goodman Atrium to discuss the latest initiatives, challenges, breakthroughs, publications and success stories. This is our way of hearing about emerging ideas and important results from our own trainees, research professionals, innovation platform leaders and PIs. These casual meetings are an occasion to gather around science, bridging across the group’s expertise and sparking entirely new collaborations. The Spotlight seminars are also often used to feature new Associate Members of the Institute and to hear about emerging ideas and initiatives in cancer research directly from leaders in the field. This seminar series is largely led and organized by the GCI Student society.
