MMA and Jackson Laboratory Seeking Volunteers to Assist with 2018 Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative Forum - April 6-8
The Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative will hold its 2018 Forum April 6-8 at the Samoset Resort in Rockport, Maine. MMA has been asked to help staff the Forum and is seeking 4 or 5 volunteers from the ranks of our retired members to assist with registration and hosting of the attendees. In exchange, the volunteers will receive housing and free registration to the conference. Any MMA member wishing to take advantage of this opportunity should communicate with MMA EVP Gordon Smith at email@example.com.
The Maine Cancer Genomics Initiative (MCGI) is a collaboration of leading Maine and New England clinical and research institutions focused on advancing cancer care and research in Maine. The Initiative is supported by the Harold Alfond Foundation in partnership with The Jackson Laboratory. Learn more at www.jax.org/mcgi. The Program is directed by Andrey Antov, Ph.D., M.B.A. with medical direction from Jens Rueter, M.D.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in the state and new tests and treatments for cancer are increasingly based on the genetic testing of tumors. MCGI is designed to foster this emerging approach to cancer care, also known as Precision Medicine, and to support Maine cancer clinicians and patients.< Previous Article | Next Article >
