XVIIIth KICancer-StratCan Retreat
The XVIIIth KICancer-StratCan Retreat takes place September 16-17, 2019 at Djurönäset in the Stockholm archipelago, gathering Cancer Researchers from Karolinska Institutet and University Hospital for an annual joint scientific meeting.
The retreat is open for all KI students, post-docs and supervisors with an interest in cancer research and in the StratCan-KICancer program, its current and future activities.
