Global Cancer Consortium

In 2020, Markey Cancer Center formed a cancer research consortium with Tata Memorial Center, Manipal University Cancer Center, and Saroj Gupta Cancer Center in India, and Mayo Clinic Cancer Center (Rochester, Jacksonville, and Scottsdale) in the United States. Cancer research consortium activities include monthly seminars including a Community Outreach series, a Cardio-Oncology series, and a Cancer Engineering series.  Mini-Symposiums are also held throughout the year with talks by 8-10 distinguished speakers from the US, Europe, India, Brazil and other countries. All basic science and clinical faculty and trainees associated with Markey are welcome to attend and participate in consortium activities.
