Let’s Talk Cancer


Let’s Talk Cancer is a free one-day symposium for grade 11 and 12 students interested in the field of cancer research. This event is organized by the Canadian Cancer Society’s Research Information Outreach Team and Let’s Talk Science at Western University. Students will have the chance to explore the different facets of cancer research and realize its interdisciplinary nature; they will learn how different disciplines, like biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and math, are all instrumental in advancing cancer research. Students will also have the opportunity to interact with cancer researchers and learn first-hand from their experiences. Previous events included keynote speeches from cancer experts, workshops held by graduate students and clinicians, as well as lab tours.
