This symposium will include speakers from many different cancer fields, including a surgeon, a cancer survivor and many cancer researchers!

Let’s Talk Science at the University of Ottawa will also be offering a classroom workshop to prepare students for the symposium.

Through the interactive workshop students’ will learn the basics of cancer biology, along with associated risk factors and current treatment options. Students will also learn how new biotherapies are developed, and will design their own biotherapy through a hands-on activity. To complete the workshop students will participate in a class discussion about ethical issues that may arise from the research process.

Good morning Kim, if you could contact me at Richard.Jung@uottawa.ca - we could definitely discuss the possibility of having your students join us for the conference! Have a wonderful day.

Dear sir or mam, I teach science to grade 10 students of the International Baccalareate program. Although we don't meet the age criteria for Let's Talk Cancer, these are very motivated and curious students. We have also participated in the Stem Cell Talks for over five years. I would like to organize a in class presentation for two groups of students followed by a possible participation in the symposium.
