Te Aka Mātauranga Matepukupuku Centre for Cancer Research Symposium 2023

Te Aka warmly welcomes you to respond to this call for abstracts for our upcoming annual symposium!

Just as Te Aka seeks to ‘link the vines’ across all fields of cancer research, so to our call for abstracts is wide open with respect to the expertise and disciplinary approach you might apply to cancer research.

The broad themes of our symposium are Whanaungatanga, The Patient Journey, and Discovery, and we invite you to consider your work through one or more of these lenses. The detailed programming of the event will be determined and shared with you after all abstracts are received, but you can expect two full days of discovery and ideation with ample opportunity for networking and hospitality.

The call for abstracts closes on Friday 6 October at 5pm. We’ve kept the submission process light and easy – just follow this link and submit the online form and we will be in touch. Te Aka are also offering a modest award of $3000 each for our top presentations resulting from the abstract submission process. Submit your abstract here! PhD and early-mid career research contributions are strongly encouraged!


Registration and what’s next

Te Aka’s 2023 Symposium will be held at the University of Auckland’s Grafton Campus on 30 November and 1 December 2023.
There is no charge for registration, and we invite all attendees to become a member of Te Aka so we can connect you with our opportunities and keep you in the loop (for example, you can expect news of our 2023 Research Funding Round in the very near future!).
