Please consider presenting a poster even if your work is not specifically related to viral oncology. We would like to encourage poster presentation by scientists and trainees broadly in the fields of virology and oncology.  Our hope is to bring together scientists in these two disciplines to cross-pollinate ideas and seed collaboration. Final results are not required, and ‘works in progress’ and posters that have been recently presented at other meetings are welcome. Prizes for the best posters will be given at 2:45 pm.
