Global Oncology


The Global Oncology Program at UWCCC was launched in 2020 by Dr. Nabeel Zafar in effort to streamline communication and research happening at a global scale at UWCCC. This program aims to:

  • Introduce partnerships and collaboration opportunities between researchers at UWCCC and other institutions
  • Increase visibility of international research through participating in seminars, conferences, and various presentations within and outside of UWCCC
  • Increase funding opportunities for those wanting to start or continue their international cancer-related research
