SABCR Research Symposium

Students Advancing Brain Cancer Research (SABCR) is a non-profit organization geared towards supporting brain tumor research in Canada, and the first of its kind at McMaster University. 

The annual research symposium brings together students, researchers, survivors and members of the community to share experiences, exchange ideas, and raise awareness of brain cancer. This is an opportunity for us to celebrate the resilience of those affected by brain tumours and their community.

SABCR will be hosting its annual brain tumour research symposium at McMaster University on Saturday March 30, 2019. This is an exciting platform for students and the community to learn from the leading experts of the field.

Running concurrently with the symposium is the undergraduate research competition. We welcome all undergraduate students attending an Ontario university, in groups of 2-4 members, to submit research proposals from which finalists will be invited to present to a panel of adjudicators at the symposium. 

Please visit their website or Facebook event page for registration and more information.  

When: March 30, 2019 

Time: 10:30 am - 4:00 pm EST

New location: CIBC Hall, McMaster University, 1280 Main St. W., Hamilton, ON

Registration Fee: Free!

Doug's Adventure

I am Doug, I have brain cancer; I am told it is terminal, but the “good” kind of terminal. I can assure you that receiving that news was not as good as I think the people telling me thought it would be. But I choose never to define myself with negatives or problems so I will begin again; Hi, my name is Doug, a current defending two-time world rowing champion. That sounds better. Here is just a small summary of my adventure last year.
