Imagine Lecture

Inspired by our patient and caregiver community who ask "what if there is another way" for patient care, we are hosting the inaugural Trainee Imagine Lecture. The Imagine Lecture will be part of the first-ever Patient Plenary Session at the Summit for Cancer Immunotherapy (Summit4CI).

The goal of the Imagine Lecture is to showcase a Trainee who has taken a patient-focused approach to their research in hopes of ultimately improving on the quality of life of cancer patients. Guided by a senior Network clinician and/or scientist, the successful candidate will develop and present a lecture that speaks to their experience with patients, focusing their talk on a topic that is relevant and accessible to all delegates. This lecture will highlight the impact that patient or caregiver engagement has had on the trainee's current or future research or professional activities and will touch on the perceived impact the engagement has had on the patient or caregiver.


The recipient of the Imagine Lecture Award will be reimbursed for travel, meals and accommodations (as per the BioCanRx Travel Policy) and will have their Summit4CI registration fee covered. Additionally, the recipient will receive a monetary gift.
