This past Friday, the University of Florida Cancer Center hosted the first annual Cancer Research Showcase in the Cancer Genetics Research Complex. Dr. Renne and Dorci Nance planned the event, which brought 9 outstanding K99 awardees to UF to present their work and learn about faculty opportunities here in Gainesville. Renne Lab members assisted with the registration desk, took photos of the event, and attended invitee and UF faculty presentations.
