Invited Speakers:


Abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to the STAT family of proteins and cancer. They should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible to attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Please apply in writing via email to Maureen Morrow and state your financial needs; preference will be given to those who submit abstracts.
