Though our annual Retreat is geared for PIs and faculty, we know training programs and cancer centers value the knowledge their support staff brings to the team. Administrative roles, whether working in grants, education, diversity or CRTEC, are welcome to join their leaders at the CABTRAC Retreat to learn more about the processes and issues common to cancer research training programs across the country.


The 20th Cancer Biology Annual Retreat will be held at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown hotel in Kansas City, Missouri Monday, October 28 through Wednesday, October 30, 2024.
