The Auburn University Research Initiative in Cancer, or AURIC, will hold its annual Cancer Research Symposium Aug. 25-26 at the Marriott Grand National in Opelika.

“The event is free and open to anyone interested in cancer research,” said AURIC Director Bruce Smith, a professor in Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. “We invite presenters who would like to talk about their research, as well as any interested research or medical professionals.”

The two-day symposium begins at 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 25. Lunch is provided both days as well as dinner on Friday evening.

“This meeting will give Auburn faculty the chance to put together new teams to investigate new problems, which is a great opportunity for all involved,” Dr. Smith said.

The event is free for AURIC members, and registering for the symposium provides membership and free attendance for non-members.

AURIC grant recipients will present the current findings of their scientific work to peers, including faculty and post-doctoral, graduate and undergraduate students. Platform and poster presentations will outline detailed results of ongoing research by AURIC members, and informative sessions will showcase opportunities and facilities available to researchers.

A portion of the meeting will be devoted to familiarizing attendees with Auburn University resources that could assist their research, Smith adds.

Pre-registration is encouraged. Registration can be made online.

Researchers interested in presenting during the event should contact Smith by email at
