CCMI - Symposium




5:00 PM-12:00 PM

The Cancer Cell Map Initiative (CCMI, UC San Diego & UCSF) was excited to host the 2022 CSBC West Coast Symposium. This in-person symposium featured short talks from mostly trainees (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and staff scientists) from each of the West Coast Centers and Projects in the Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC).

In addition to the scientific presentations below, there was a welcome reception at the hotel on Wednesday night (March 9) and a harbor cruise with dinner on Thursday (March 10). The Symposium concluded with lunch on Friday (March 11).
