CaNCURE Co-op Showcase

Our second annual CaNCURE Co-op Showcase will feature talks and posters by the 2016 CaNCURE co-op students, all of whom have performed cutting edge nanomedicine research in laboratories across Boston.  We invite all faculty and students to join us on Dec 14 at Noon to celebrate the accomplishments of our Nanomedicine trainees!

No registration is necessary to attend.
