2nd Faris D. Virani Ewing Sarcoma International Conference
September 27 - 28, 2017


It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2nd Faris D. Virani Ewing Sarcoma International Conference that will be held September 27-28, 2017 in Houston, TX at Texas Children’s Cancer Center.

This year we are excited to offer two travel awards to trainees that will cover airfare, lodging, ground transportation to/from the Houston airport and conference meals. Award recipients will be invited to give an oral presentation at the conference. If you have trainees in your laboratory who are performing Ewing Sarcoma research and are interested in this opportunity, please encourage them to submit an abstract for review. (See Travel Award Abstract Submission below)

While we will not have a formal poster session, there will be an area at the conference venue with poster boards where investigators and trainees can share their work in poster format. When you register, please indicate if you would like to bring a poster for display.
