Education Committee Members

This committee was organized to provide our membership the educational resources needed to stay informed on the latest developments in cancer cachexia. The committee is made up of early-career faculty members dedicated to the study of cancer cachexia mechanism and therapeutics. An online seminar series that brings together one hundred of our community members each month was launched in the fall of 2020. More recently, the committee broadened its communication with our society members by introducing a Society Slack to facilitate communication between members.

New in 2022 –
The committee would like to inform you of a new aspect of our mentoring program, the Trainee Talks.
The first session will take place on September 28th at 12:00 pm EDT. In short, within each session, three early career researchers will be presenting their work for 15 min each.

Two spots have already been filled for the first session, one spot left !
We are also looking for 3 additional speakers for the next session.

Do you have new data to share ? Looking for a new position in the field of cancer cachexia?
We invite you to nominate yourself (and/or nominate a colleague) by filling the form before August 31th, 2022.

Applications are open to everyone, so please forward on this announcement to anyone interested.
