Events

Participate in our Events

Members of APCaRI are involved in a wide range of translational, clinical and discovery research events such as scientific conferences and meetings. These meetings help keep us at the forefront of scientific discovery and application. Our scientists and trainees present posters and give talks helping stimulate interest in the overall program by national and international collaborations

We are also invested in the local and provincial community, reaching out to Albertans through many events tied to fundraising and prostate cancer awareness. We work alongside organizations like the Alberta Cancer foundation, Prostate Cancer Canada, MotorCycle Ride for Dad and Movember to help stimulate fundraising as well as provide the donors with a direct link and people to answer questions about where their donated dollars actually go.

The staff at the Alberta Cancer Foundation have harnessed our group for many events since we have arrived in Alberta.
