Annual Scientific Conference
The Annual Scientific Conference provides an opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to present their research progress to the faculty and their peers. In addition, the Conference is designed to acquaint new first year graduate students with the Program and to inform them of research opportunities. Faculty members have the opportunity to present at a poster session. Cancer Biology graduate students are required to attend the Conference.

Jing Shan Lim, Ph.D.
Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Wai Leong Tam Lab, Genome Institute of Singapore
Jing Shan Lim grew up in Singapore and moved to the United States for her undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she worked with Dr. Lin-Feng Chen on the tumor suppressor RUNX3 in breast cancer. In 2010, she joined the Cancer Biology Program at Stanford University. Her thesis work in the laboratory of Dr. Julien Sage demonstrated that the Notch signaling pathway can have both pro-tumorigenic and tumor suppressive roles in small cell lung cancer. Jing is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Wai Leong Tam’s lab at the Genome Institute of Singapore, where she is studying tumor-stroma interactions and chemoresistance in pancreatic cancer.
