Bridge Project Events

The Bridge Project is a collaboration between the Koch Institute and the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC), designed to bring bioengineering, advanced cancer science, and clinical oncology together to solve today’s most challenging problems in cancer research and care. Visit the Bridge Project page to learn more.

To encourage the formation of cross-disciplinary teams, we regularly hold informational sessions, workshops, and symposia based on complex translational problems in cancer. Check below for information about upcoming Bridge Project opportunities and events, or click the listings to the left to view videos from previous events.

2015 Bridge Project Symposium & Networking Reception: September 8

Register online

Tyler Jacks and David Livingston will announce new details for the 2015 Bridge Project RFA. This event will also feature presentations by successful Bridge Project awardees and highlight information and resources that may benefit your application package.

We strongly encourage anyone interested in applying for Bridge Project funding to attend the entire event. Updates and tips for the upcoming RFA and information about the two new interest areas may be critical for your application.

The Bridge Project is designed to reach beyond existing individual networks to establish new ties between unmet clinical needs and technological solutions that have not traditionally been connected. Thus, to help you build new bridges, we will conclude the event with a networking reception.

This will be the ONLY Bridge Project event before the application deadline on October 22, 2015.

We hope you can join us for this exciting day of interdisciplinary dialogue about cancer research.
