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.
