Metastasis Scientific Interest Group

The goal of the Metastasis Special Interest Group is to support metastasis-related research at the NIH. This SIG accomplishes this by increased communication between research groups through monthly meetings, seminars and/or workshops. Since metastasis is a systemic disease that involves multiple cell and tissue types throughout the organism it is anticipated that this SIG will be of broad interest across NIH institutes.

Meetings will initially be held virtually but may transition to a hybrid virtual/in person meeting in the future. The Metastasis SIG, through Invited Seminar Series, will expose NIH researchers to current developments in metastasis-related research, increase opportunities for Intramural-extramural networking, foster potential collaborative efforts, develop novel clinical interventions and enhance the ability to recruit highly qualified trainees for NIH laboratories. In addition, the Metastasis SIG will host a biannual symposium to permit trainees to present their research to the NIH community and network with invited extramural speakers. Membership in Metastasis SIG will be open to all interested NIH PIs and trainees upon official announcement of the formation of the SIG.
