The GCC Conference Committee invites you to register for the 2017 GCC Annual Conference, held at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center June 27-30.
This year, the conference themes are Innovation and Insight; and the program will again include a pre-conference session on Tuesday, June 27th for members who are new to the profession or to working specifically with graduate students, PhDs and Postdoctoral scholars and would like additional professional development.
We will host all days of the pre-conference and conference at the MD Anderson campus. The Conference Committee is hard at work building out a program of events and speakers to engage and educate. We are expanding the scope of our poster session this year, in order to encourage more of our members to share best practices and showcase great ideas. The call for posters, along with the call for programs for member-generated sessions, will open in early January.
The registration fee for 2017 will be $425.00. Please note: all your meals during the conference will be provided. In order to budget effectively, we ask that you register no later than April 1st or a late registration fee of $50.00 will be assessed. You may register through the GCC website if your paid membership is up to date. The cost for the pre-conference is $100.
Conference accommodation will be offered at a hotel adjacent to the medical campus/conference site, the Courtyard by Marriott Medical Center Houston, at a group rate of $149/night.
Our conference hotel will serve as an evening social point for networking with colleagues (and we also are planning a Wednesday evening event/reception at the Houston Museum of Art).
We will post information on the GCC website about programs and conference schedule as it develops.
We look forward to seeing you in Texas!
Your 2017 GCC Conference Co-Chairs,
Natalie Lundsteen - The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (Dallas)
Chris Taylor - The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston)
