April 1, 2017

Dear Cancer Center Members,

With your strong support, a number of outstanding cancer researchers have been visiting Purdue and presenting their research work in the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research since 2010. Dr. Chang-Deng Hu and I thank you for volunteering your time to meet with seminar speakers and to encourage your students to attend their seminars. We also want to thank Michelle for providing outstanding organizational and administrative support of this program. We couldn't run this program without her support!

We have a number of outstanding seminars remaining this spring and please continue your support and encourage your lab members to attend seminars. Nonetheless, we are now beginning to plan for the 2017-2018 seminar series. To submit your nominations, please use the Submission Form and include the following: (1) contact information and the URL linking to the research profile and (2) rationale of your nomination. Your nomination should be submitted to Ms. Michelle Liratni at by May 15, 2017.

Remember we want speakers with a strong cancer focus and we want a slate of speakers that represents all four cancer center scientific programs. The Cancer Center Seminar Series Committee will make the final recommendation after reviewing all nominations. The primary criteria for the decision are: (1) relevance to cancer research; (2) distinguished reputation of potential speakers (e.g. study section members, associated editors, conference organizers, president or vice president of scientific societies); and (3) program balance. We expect to invite two outside seminar speakers for each program in the 2017-2018 Seminar Series.

Thank you very much in advance for your response!
