Division Activities

Since its formation in April 2015, the Division for Cancer Pharmacology (DCP) is emerging as the 'go-to' place for cancer pharmacologists to gather at the ASPET Annual Meeting at Experimental Biology (EB) to present their latest findings on all aspects of cancer pharmacology. The ASPET Annual Meeting also provides an excellent forum for cancer pharmacologists to build professional networks and form collaborations with colleagues interested in cancer pharmacology from across the continent.  ASPET members interested in cancer pharmacology research are encouraged to join this Division as either a primary or secondary member.

The next ASPET Annual Meeting at EB is April 22-26, 2017 in Chicago, IL.  We hope you will plan to attend.

Upcoming Division Activities

For the annual meeting (April 22-26, 2017), DCP is sponsoring an exciting roster of programming including three Symposia entitled 3D Biology in Cancer PharmacologyChildhood Cancer Drug Development, and Stem Cells in Cancer. Thanks to those who submitted Symposia proposals for consideration by the ASPET Program Committee. We encourage all of you to submit Symposia proposals for EB2018; the deadline for submissions will be March 2017.

A DCP-sponsored Young Investigator Symposium will also be held at the ASPET Annual Meeting where all of the speakers will be trainees (undergraduate student, graduate student, or postdoctoral scientist). Speakers will be selected from abstracts submitted to EB in a Cancer Pharmacology abstract topic category. Those selected as speakers may receive a $250 award.

Best Presentation Awards will also be given out by DCP for best posters by postdoc, graduate student, and undergrad participants of the ASPET Student/Postdoc poster competition. All trainees are encouraged to submit an abstract in a Cancer Pharmacology category, and to apply for an ASPET Travel Award and Best Presentation Award. DCP’s priority is to make sure that the next generation of cancer pharmacologist are recognized for their scientific contributions! Prizes will be awarded at the DCP Mixer which will be held jointly with several other ASPET Divisions. 

Finally, we hope you will plan to come to the DCP Annual Business Meeting at EB2017. Let us know about your ideas for scientific programming, and any other matters related to promoting the discipline of cancer pharmacology.
