The Scholars in Oncology-Associated Research (SOAR) Spring Seminar Series is a component of the SOAR R25 cancer research education program sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (Grant #R25CA240134). The SOAR seminar series will expose students to principles of cancer research and clinical care through an interdisciplinary and interprofessional lens. The goal of this elective is to enhance learning opportunities in the summer research program by facilitating greater understanding of the basics underpinning interdisciplinary and interprofessional oncology. This seminar series will review a wide array of topics related to clinical oncology and cancer research from across the oncology care spectrum.
