CPRIT’s Innovations in Cancer Prevention and Research Conference VI was held on October 2 and 3, 2023. It highlighted the exceptional progress across cancer research, prevention, and product development at medical and academic research centers, in communities, and at companies around Texas. The conference featured informative sessions on CPRIT-funded initiatives on computational biology and modeling for drug discovery, the use of artificial intelligence in imaging, the expansion of drug development resources and biomanufacturing facilities in Texas, and immunology and vaccine development in cancer.
Lively CPRIT grantee networking sessions on multiple cancer prevention topics, including HPV vaccination and colorectal cancer screening, were also available to attendees.
National speakers included Dr. Doug Lowy, Deputy Director of the National Cancer Institute, Dr. John Carpten, Chief Scientific Officer, City of Hope, Dr. Katy Keenan, National Institute of Standards and Technology and Dr. Stephen Baylin, Professor and Co-Director, Cancer Biology Division at Johns Hopkins.
Over 60 speakers participated in the conference.
