Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden, serve as hosts for the Annual GAP Meeting 2018

Dear colleagues and friends,

Global Academic Programs (GAP) at MD Anderson Cancer Center consists of a network of Sister Institutions (SIs) that are leading cancer-fighting institutions from around the world working collaboratively with the joint goal to end cancer.
The annual GAP Conference provides a forum for faculty from MD Anderson and its Sister Institutions to develop collaborations and exchange research results and ideas. Sessions are formed around topics of interest to the members of the Sister Institution Network.
The event is held at MD Anderson in odd years and is hosted by a Sister Institution in even years.
We invite all Sister Institution partners and network collaborators to join us at the GAP 2018 Conference at Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. The meeting is open also for external participants (registration fee applies to non-network members).
We look forward to welcoming you to Scandinavia during light springtime for a cancer conference with three days of inspiring science, discussions and interactions – welcome to beautiful Stockholm May 15-17, 2018! More information and registration available later.
