Committees

CABTRAC has established six 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 advisory committee, reporting to the board of directors.

CABTRAC members are encouraged to participate in the committees of their choice. Please feel free to contact the committee chairs directly to join:
