Scientific training, participation and interaction at the VI Scientific Gathering of Young Researchers RTICC.

The VI Scientific Gathering of Young researchers RTICC 2016 was held in the Cancer Research Centre of Salamanca. Organised and funded by the Subject-based Network of Cooperative Research in Cancer (RTICC), the Health Institute III (Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness) and the Cancer Research Foundation at the University of Salamanca (FICUS), which work to strengthen the development of joint projects and the exchange between young researchers affiliated with the network.

More than one hundred young researchers from 24 centres through the country presented their research work during this initiative which aims to provide a networking opportunity for young scientists to exchange experiences, knowledge and technology with other researchers currently working in groups affiliated with RTICC. These young scientists surprise us every day with new models, and an extraordinary level, committed to Cancer Research Centre as an international reference, despite its funding problems. The reality of research in general and the Cancer Research Centre in particular is, however, very different.  The truth is that we would like for the Regional Community of Castile and Leon to provide us with more support and to follow through with its promise to approve the programme contract. This does not appear to be a priority for the regional government and forces us to compete at a disadvantage against other Regional Communities.
