Welcome to the Fifth RAS Initiative Symposium 2024

This three-day international symposium is the fifth RAS community-wide meeting sponsored by the NCI RAS Initiative. The overarching goal of the NCI RAS Initiative is to mobilize the cancer research community to develop ways to understand and target cancers driven by mutant RAS in an open model of collaboration among government, academic, and industry researchers. The Symposium will feature invited presentations, short presentations from selected abstracts, and poster presentations.

This year, we are pleased to host the first “Targeting RAS in Pediatrics” mini-symposium, which will immediately follow the Fifth RAS Initiative Symposium on the afternoon of Thursday, October 10, 2024 at the same location.  The pediatric mini-symposium will also feature invited presentations and short presentations from selected abstracts.
