2019 Pediatric Cancer Research Group Symposium

The Pediatric Cancer Research Group is a multidisciplinary team of scientists working to improve the outcomes of children diagnosed with cancer by combining the scientific infrastructure of the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the Fred and Pamela Buffet Cancer Center with the resources and clinical expertise of Children’s Hospital & Medical Center.

The purpose of the Pediatric Cancer Research Symposium is fourfold:

  • To provide an update for the lay audience on projects that have been funded by LB 764 and LB 417: What is the problem being investigated? How is the research team attempting to solve the problem? What resources are required to continue the work?
  • To welcome a distinguished keynote speaker, a recognized leader in the field of child cancer research, who can speak to a hot topic of broad interest to the investigator community and to a lay audience 
  • To provide an update on the major project Epidemiology of Pediatric Cancer in Nebraska to the lay audience
  • To share scientific presentations regarding the progress of funded progress to the research community
