Location: Samis Education Center
Registration and Call for Abstracts: http://end2cancer.com/
Summary: The END2CANCER conference will start the morning of December 6th, 2018 and conclude
in the afternoon of December 7th, 2018. The conference will bridge laboratory research conducted in
the areas of nanotechnology and drug delivery to clinical application for the detection, diagnosis,
imaging and treatment of cancer. The conference will host keynote, plenary and invited lectures by
eminent scientists who will discuss new and emerging concepts, technologies and challenges in
translating nanomedicine from bench-to-bedside.
Topics to be discussed in the planned thematic sessions include barriers in drug delivery, discovery
and applications, biological and non-biological systems as carriers and therapeutics, molecular imaging,
biomimetics, immune-oncology, toxicology and clinical trials.
The multi-disciplinary two-day conference will bring together physicians, basic scientists, engineers,

The Oklahoma Clinical and Translational Science Institute (OCTSI) and Oklahoma Shared Clinical
and Translational Resources (OSCTR) is soliciting applications for its Clinical and Translational
Research Pilot (CTRP) Grants Program. The purpose of the program is to provide funding for
collaborative and/or multi-disciplinary clinical and translational pilot projects between investigators of
the OSCTR member institutions.
The program seeks to support proposals designed to generate preliminary data that will result in
improved health and/or healthcare for citizens of Oklahoma and other IDeA states and enhance the
competitiveness of the investigators for future extramural funding. The program also seeks to fund
innovative concepts, approaches, and methodologies that bring fresh new ideas to solving the health
issues of those living in Oklahoma and collaborating IDeA states. Projects that focus on the medically
underserved and on health concerns prevalent within Oklahoma and our OSCTR partners will be a
priority. Only projects which meet the NIH definition of clinical and/or translational research will be
accepted. Proposals are due September 21, 2018. More information can be found at
