2017 Annual Cancer Symposium

The Cancer Community of Scholars enhances cancer prevention, early detection, and survival by cultivating and facilitating multidisciplinary partnerships in research, treatment, education, mentorship, and community outreach at the Medical Center, Institute of Agriculture, and the main campus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.


The Cancer Community of Scholars will harness and focus the growing multidisciplinary talents, facilities and resources at the University of Tennessee’s Knoxville campuses toward our goal of advancing an institution that will be widely known for excellence in cancer research, prevention and treatment.
