2020 Early Detection Seminar Series

Seminar & Discussion: 11:00am - 12:00pm

Reception: 12:00pm - 12:30pm

The Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection is committed to fundamental discovery and translation of novel early cancer detection and prognostication strategies. We have brought together scientists, physicians, and engineers to think outside the box to create new solutions for cancer early detection. The Canary Center hosts a seminar series, CEDSS, that presents seminars highlighting new research in Early Cancer Detection. These seminars are open and free to everyone in the Stanford community. 

Note: This seminar does not run through the Summer months.
