Stanford CCSB 3rd Annual Symposium

Systems Biology of Cancer

May 3, 2013

The Stanford CCSB will hold an Annual Symposium at the Li Ka Shing Conference Center. This conference is designed for participants to explore systems biology approaches that aim to elucidate the role of differentiation, self-renewal, stem cells in cancer initiation, progression and treatment.
