Think Tanks

Think tank

In April 2016, WCRG kicked off its quarterly Cancer Research Think Tank series. The objective of the Think Tanks is to present and discuss cancer research topics of interest and identify collaborative teams that can work together to bring these projects forward for funding.

Think Tank Goals
  1. Highlight upcoming funding opportunities
  2. Identify specific projects to submit in upcoming funding opportunities
  3. Enhance collaborations and build teams
  4. Stimulate ideas for future Think Tanks

Participants are provided with a package that includes a list of participants, an agenda, a list of funding opportunities and a feedback form. The results of each Think Tank are captured in a report and circulated to all participants. Summaries of the Think Tank outcomes are provided here:
