The Barry & Virginia Weinman Symposium
10th Annual Weinman Symposium
November 29 — 30th, 2018
In 2010, Barry and Virginia Weinman created the Weinman Foundation Fund for Innovation, gifting the University of Hawaii Cancer Center with a $1.7M fund. Through this generous gift, the annual Weinman Symposium was established. The goal of the two-day conference is to bring together international experts from different fields of science and medicine, promoting collaboration and brainstorming about specific themes in cancer research.
Speakers will present information about the biological mechanisms of these syndromes, along with techniques for helping to improve the lives of people affected by them.
This two-day conference features experts in genetic syndromes from around the world, along with scientists and physicians at the University of Hawai'i Cancer Center.
The meetings are free and open to the public.
November 29 – 30, 2018 from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
