Karolinska Clinical Cancer Talks

Karolinska Comprehensive Cancer Center launches a new series of talks, “Karolinska Clinical Cancer Talks”, where distinguished cancer researchers will give talks on topics in cancer research for cancer researchers and clinicians in cancer care. While the topics may be highly specialized, the presentations should be understandable for all with training in cancer biology, oncology, and oncologic surgery. The talks will be given in English.
