We have an exciting agenda in store to educate and inspire you.

There will be the customary update from the Office of Grants Administration (OGA) and other sessions devoted to topics we face as Cancer Center Administrators. A breakout session is planned that is dedicated to the challenges unique to basic science Cancer Centers. And, we are once again including a track specifically for IT professionals.

Philadelphia, the cradle of liberty, is a richly diverse city. Our conference hotel is located in the heart of the historic district, an easy walk to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross House, and many other notable sites – not to mention a wide range of excellent restaurants. Philadelphia is home to several renowned art museums, including the eponymous Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum, and the newly opened Barnes Foundation. Take advantage of the extended hotel conference rates and come a day or two early to enjoy everything the City of Brotherly Love has to offer!
