Speakers

  • Troy McEachron, PhD
    Assistant Professor of Research, Translational Genomics, University of Southern California, Keck School of Medicine
    Biography
      Dr. McEachron received his PhD in Cellular and Molecular Pathology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed postdoctoral training at both the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and at the Translational Genomics Research Institute. Dr. McEachron is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Translational Genomics and the Department of Pediatrics at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Dr. McEachron's research employs integrated multi-parametric approaches to reveal how the genomic complexity of pediatric osteosarcoma influences the tumor microenvironment and, in response, how the microenvironment supports the growth of such genomically unstable tumors. Dr. McEachron's research interests reflect his diverse training history which includes the molecular dissection of autocrine and paracrine signaling mechanisms between tumor and host using in vitro and in vivo models, the characterization of genetically engineered mouse models of pediatric brain tumors, and the interpretation and functional validation next generation sequencing data from recurrent/refractory pediatric cancer patients for clinical decision making.

    Cancer Research & Oncology 2019

    LabRoots and the Cancer Research and Oncology Planning Committee are pleased to announce the 7th Annual Cancer Research and Oncology Virtual Event! This 2-day event will take place on October 9-10, 2019 and will focus on advancements in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of different cancer types.

    Cancer research has made major advancements in diagnosis, treatments, and the basic understanding of the disease itself. Each year we see progress in immunotherapy, treatments involving nanotechnology, advances in targeted and personalized therapeutics and drug development, and a decrease in mortality rates due to a strong focus on learning more about the origination of the disease.

    The tracks for this year's event include: 

    • Tumor Drug Resistance and Tumor Evolution
    • Radiation Resistance
    • Novel Cancer Therapeutics and Cancer Prevention
    • Molecular Guidance Versus Standard of Care
       

    The free, two-day online event will bring research professionals, scientists, and clinicians from around the world to learn and discuss recent advances in cancer research. As with all LabRoots event, the Cancer Research and Oncology Event encourages a worldwide collaboration and connections between colleagues and field experts.

    Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  The webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global cancer community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

    Like the 2018 conference, this event will be produced on our robust virtual platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots most popular shirts.



     

    Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2019 Cancer Research and Oncology Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.
