About This Event

  • Event Type:Educational Group
Details: Major diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, obesity, aging and neurodegeneration are often studied and treated in isolation. Yet, each of them may be related, causally or otherwise, to one another. Therefore, facilitating crosstalk among these different disciplines fosters multidisciplinary collaboration and helps devise innovative and effective approaches to target those diseases.

The two-day Web of Life Conference will be hosted for the first time by the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences in April 2024. To realize the full potential of team science, experts from cancer, diabetes, aging, neurodegenerative disease and bioengineering will be brought together to facilitate transdisciplinary dialogues under one common theme — “Web of Life: Connecting the Dots.”

This conference is expected to significantly impact and improve the way we engage
communities, foster collaboration, treat patients and facilitate groundbreaking discoveries.

April 25 - 26, 2024
Oklahoma City, OK
