The conference was extremely well organized, coordinated and planned. The conference members you put together from across basic research, translation and clinical capabilities creates a complete eco-system to impact this field. . . the event will enable many collaborative discussions to advance the goals of the Foundation.

The Inaugural CCF Stakeholder’s Meeting was held February 27-28, 2014 at the University of Utah in collaboration with the Hepatobiliary Cancer Research Program at Huntsman Cancer Institute, The BiliProject Foundation and Target Cancer.  56 physicians and researchers attended from 27 US and international cancer centers. 9 working groups were formed to work cross-institutionally on basic, translational and clinical outcomes.  Sessions focused on the latest updates, research, current data and treatment options for cholangiocarcinoma.

mjavieThanks a lot, for a superb event. It’s hard to believe your organization is still so young, and you have already achieved so much. I have been to other such events before, but the enthusiasm in that room was very palpable.
