Committees

CABTRAC has established five committees tasked with pursuing the latest trends in cancer research training to bring innovative and leading information to CABTRAC members. The primary goal of the committees is to organize and facilitate annual retreat speakers, sessions and workshops. Additionally, the committees contribute to white paper publications, advocacy letters to the National Cancer Institute, and other theme-based projects. Committee chairs are members of CABTRAC’s executive committee, reporting to the board of directors.

CABTRAC members are encouraged to attend the committee meeting of their choice at the annual retreat, currently scheduled for Monday, October 26. Please feel free to contact the committee chairs with questions or comments before, during or after the retreat.
