Van Andel Institute's Origins of Cancer symposium brings together students, scientists and medical professionals to explore paradigm-shifting cancer research. The 2022 symposium will honor the late Dr. George Vande Woude, the Institute’s founding research director and a groundbreaking scientist whose discovery of the MET oncogene revolutionized our understanding of cancer. This year’s distinguished roster of speakers will highlight Dr. Vande Woude’s legacy and recent breakthroughs in the oncogene field.
Registration for the 2022 symposium will open in spring 2022. To be added to our email list or for questions, please contact Courtney Zirkle at Courtney.Zirkle@vai.org.
