New Investigator Forum on Integrative Oncology Research Methods

Application deadline: May 28, 2019

Overview:  The Society for Integrative Oncology (SIO) is committed to developing talented young investigators in integrative oncology with its New Investigator Forum on Integrative Oncology Research Methods. We are now accepting New Investigator Forum applications for the 16th International Conference that will be held in New York, NY, October 19-21. Open to advanced doctoral students, postdoctoral trainees and junior faculty, a selected group of scholars will be chosen to meet with internationally recognized leaders in the field and present their research for discussion and constructive feedback. The research may be in its planning stages or work in progress that is not yet completed.

Purpose: Provide students, trainees and junior faculty with an opportunity to have planned research or research in progress reviewed, discussed and critiqued in a supportive environment by experienced and highly regarded integrative oncology experts who have varied clinical and scientific expertise.

The Society for Integrative Oncology elected three new board members and re-elected three board members at the Annual Meeting held in conjunction with SIO’s 15th annual international conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. They took office at the conclusion of the conference.

The Board is pleased to welcome the following three individuals who were newly elected to three-year terms:

As cannabis becomes more widely available for medical purposes increasing numbers of cancer patients are reporting benefit from its use. The published medical literature is thin on evidence. Oncologists report that they often recommend medical cannabis for their patients but describe a lack of knowledge to support their recommendations. An internet lore suggests that cannabis may be useful not only for treating symptoms related to cancer and its treatment but to treating cancer itself. Join us to learn the latest information on integrating cannabis into conventional cancer care.
