CCBTP trainee John Runge recently attended the annual retreat for the Cancer Biology Training Consortium (CABTRAC) in Pittsburgh, PA. He attended this retreat along with CCBTP Director Adrienne Cox, ITCMS postdoctoral T32 training grant Assistant Director Channing Der and ITCMS trainee John Pryor. CABTRAC was established in 2005 to facilitate the exchange of ideas between individuals and institutions dedicated to the mission of training the next generation of cancer researchers. The consortium works closely with over 80 institutions within the US as well as the National Cancer Institute’s Cancer Training Branch.
John presented a talk titled “Heterogeneity in INO80 Complex Assembly and Function Genome-wide Points to Critical Epigenomic Crosstalk in Cancer”. He also had the opportunity to network with cancer biology trainees from across the country. To learn more about CABTRAC and its mission, please visit http://cabtrac.org.
