The First ECICC Community MicroLab on Cancer Challenges and Advanced Computing was held on June 11, 2019!

  • What is a MicroLab? MicroLabs are 60-90 minute, highly interactive, virtual events. Unlike webinars which are focused on disseminating information, the purpose of µLabs is to facilitate stimulating scientific discussions in smaller more intimate virtual breakout groups.

  • A multi-disciplinary group of over 200 scientists participated in our first virtual, ECICC Community MicroLab on June 11, 2019!

  • The MicroLab focused on the four cancer challenge areas developed by attendees of the Envisioning Computational Innovations for Cancer Challenges (ECICC) Scoping Meeting held in March 2019.
