Welcome to the Veterinary Cancer Society Conference 2014!
We are happy to invite you to St. Louis, which is known for vibrant arts, cultural attractions, and world-class dining. St. Louis offers many exciting activities, including art museums and galleries, live theater, river cruises, and numerous historical districts with excellent shopping. The central location of the conference hotel, the Hyatt Regency at the St. Louis Arch, allows easy access to the many restaurants, theaters, and live music. The Metrolink train offers easy transportation to and from the airport and other destinations. Our conference awards banquet will be held at the St. Louis Zoo, renowned for its innovative approach to animal management, wildlife conservation and research.
We are developing a program highlighting advances in clinical oncology. Our keynote speakers have diverse interests and focus on translational medicine with applications of their research into clinical practice. We are fortunate to draw from clinicians and scientists in the Washington University-Barnes Jewish and associated health care system. A new and exciting addition this year is state of the art (SOTA) speakers, whose talks will consist of new and cutting edge treatments currently in practice. These are in addition to high quality research abstracts balanced between basic and clinical sciences.
We look forward to seeing you in St. Louis!
