The focus of the Journal Club is to discuss the most exciting findings in women’s cancer research, report on related topics, and to stimulate interactions between basic, translational, and clinical researchers. The general theme will be translational research, discussing papers that give biological and mechanistic insight into clinical observations, with the goal of stimulating new thoughts on research programs in the WCRC.
