The goal of the 2023 meeting is to highlight recent advances in cancer biology and novel therapeutics. Our intent is to provide a forum for students, postdoctoral fellows, and scientists working in this and related areas to participate and engage in productive discussions with colleagues in the field. The annual meeting of the GLC of ASPET has historically provided an excellent forum of learning and exchanging of ideas in all fields of the pharmacological sciences and is a major networking event for biomedical scientists in the Great Lakes region of the Midwest.
