Cancer and Aging Working Group

The mission of the Cancer and Aging Working Group is to accelerate understanding of biology, treatment and survivorship issues that face older patients with cancer, and personalize strategies to optimize outcomes.


Meetings include discussions of recent discoveries, resources available and ongoing and upcoming research studies related to Cancer and Aging, as well as presentations from group members on new research findings, methodologies and ideas.
