ICCI Annual Symposia

The annual ICCI Cancer Research Symposium is a free all-day event that highlights the cancer research taking place at the University of Guelph and from other institutions. The day consists of short talks from students and invited local speakers, guest speakers from many areas of research, poster presentations, and a keynote speaker to cap off an eventful day promising to demonstrate the wide variety and novelty of cancer research taking place in veterinary and translational medicine.

The 2024 ICCI Cancer Research Symposium is pleased to be back in-person this year! The symposium will take place on Thursday May 23rd in the Ontario Veterinary College’s new learning wing, room ECLA 1720, with an online livestream via Teams.

We are planning an amazing day of speakers and presentations, including Dr. Chand Khanna of Ethos Veterinary Health, Animal Clinical Investigation and The Oncology Service as this year’s keynote speaker. Also joining us will be Dr. Tony Mutsaers, Dr. Dorothee Bienzle, Dr. Michelle Oblak and Charly McKenna from the Ontario Veterinary College for updates on research here on campus
