CSI-Cancer Research CollaborationsCSI_Cancer_Interaction

CSI-Cancer at the Kuhn laboratory has built and will continue to build a larger collaborative network to disseminate its capabilities and to collaborate on evolving physical sciences concepts that could address specific challenges as part of the organizing framework within the lab and the scientific community at large.  The collaborative network shows the various disciplines and specialties available to CSI-Cancer.  Part of CSI-Cancer is Research Circle, a series of talks designed to communicate results and ideas across disciplines.  See below for a schedule of Research Circle and Invited talks.
