Following the cancellation of the 8th Annual Symposium on Global Cancer Research due to the coronavirus pandemic, National Cancer Institute’s Center for Global Health has partnered with the Consortium of Universities for Global Health to host a one-hour webinar for selected oral abstract presentations, in order to share these timely and relevant research findings with the global health community. Abstracts were selected in a peer-review process based on overall score and relevance to priority topic areas; and reflect creativity and diversity of global cancer research and control programs. Presenters from Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Cancer Hospital of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, National Cancer Institute, University of Ibadan, and Yale University will present research on topics across the cancer control continuum.
