Critical Mass Research Poster Awardees

Each year Critical Mass:YA Cancer Alliance, holds an important conference bringing together stakeholders in the field of YA Cancer. Researchers, doctors, nurses, non-profit administrators, survivors and caregivers come together to learn from each other. This year the conference was held in Chicago.

As a Critical Mass partner, and strong advocate for YA Cancer Research, our foundation annually awards researchers in two categories: Innovative Research and Clinical Trials and Innovative Programs and Services. The top three research posters are selected within each category and given a cash award.

We strongly believe that good research is an important step towards finding the best way to cure and treat cancer. FIGHT CONQUER CURE!!
