In this kick-off webinar, Dr. Patricia A. Ganz will provide a keynote address on the state of symptom science research. The field of cancer symptom science comprises researchers and clinicians from both preclinical and clinical settings who are dedicated to the identification, mechanistic characterization, measurement, mitigation, and prevention of symptoms from cancer and its treatment. As an interdisciplinary field, researchers from traditionally disjointed areas must foster collaboration and unite their efforts to move science forward in a concerted and synergistic way.

This inaugural seminar is aimed at bringing together interdisciplinary researchers in cancer symptom science to share their expertise and further discussions in the field.
