The Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Colorectal Cancers (CGA-ICC) invites the submission of late breaking abstracts regarding clinical, basic science, and/or psychosocial aspects of hereditary colorectal cancer. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive update on the status of research and to stimulate collaborations, recruitment of subjects, and ideas for the development of other studies.
The original call for abstract submission closed on July 21, 2017. We are requesting that authors truly only submit late breaking research. All abstracts will be peer reviewed and selected for poster or podium presentation. Meeting and hotel registration is encouraged at the time of abstract submission. To register, click here.
