Stephanie gave a virtual talk on “Cancer stem cell niche in hepatocellular carcinoma” at the monthly Lowy Cancer Seminar Series, Lowy Cancer Research Centre at the University of South Wales in Sydney on September 29, 2021. Thank you for the invitation. Hope there are opportunites to collaborate in the future! Details of the seminar series can be found here.
Happy to have the opportunity to participate in the 10th International Workshop on Cancer Systems Biology (ICSB2021) hosted by Jilin University from July 31 to August 1, 2021. The workshop gathered 20 chinese academics working in different parts of the world. I was told the presentations attracted over 10,000 audience on various social platforms. The power of virtual conferences!
Stephanie shared the team’s latest work on liver cancer stem cell niche at the FASEB The Liver Biology Conference: Fundamental Mechanisms and Translational Applications held virtually on June 16-17, 2021. Huge thanks to organizers Stacey Huppert, Gen-Sheng Feng, Lijian Hui and Lars Zender for putting a great program together and also for the invitation to speak. The abstract submitted by Carol, RAP in the lab, was also selected for a flash talk at 5AM in the morning 🙂 It was great seeing old friends again at the meeting.
