We invite you to participate in the Fifth International Childhood Cancer Cohort Consortium (I4C) Workshop, to be held on November 12-13, 2012. The Workshop will be hosted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in Lyon, France.
The Workshop will cover a range of topics, including:
- Update from new cohorts
- Updates and discussions on future directions from the various I4C Working Groups
- Discussions on research projects involving data and specimens currently available for analysis
- Strategies adopted for cancer ascertainment by I4C cohorts
- How “Omics” research can benefit the work of the I4C
- I4C/Childhood Leukemia International Consortium combined session to discuss specific topic(s) that can be worked on together.
We extend a special welcome to investigators leading or collaborating in infant/childhood cohorts but who are not currently participating in the consortium. Epidemiologists, pediatricians, laboratory scientists, and other investigators with a particular interest in studying postulated environmental, lifestyle, molecular, and genetic risk factors for pediatric cancers are encouraged to register for this workshop.
Due to the generosity of our sponsors, registration for the meeting is FREE!
We hope to see you at the Workshop!
