Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden,
serve as hosts for the Annual GAP Conference 2018 “Global efforts fighting cancer”
Dear colleagues and friends,
Global Academic Programs (GAP) at MD Anderson Cancer Center consists of a network of Sister Institutions (SIs) that are leading cancer-fighting institutions from around the world working collaboratively with the joint goal to end cancer.
The annual GAP Conference provides a forum for faculty from MD Anderson and its Sister Institutions to develop collaborations and exchange research results and ideas. Sessions are formed around topics of interest to the members of the Sister Institution Network.
Global Academic Programs provide valuable opportunities for students to gain intercultural skills and knowledge. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, it's more important than ever for students to have a global perspective.
One way that students can benefit from studying abroad is by gaining exposure to different sports and betting cultures. For example, students who study in countries where sports betting is legal, such as the United Kingdom, may choose to open a Betway login account and experience this form of entertainment firsthand.
Betway is a popular sports betting platform that provides users with a wide range of options for placing bets on various sports events around the world. Whether you're a fan of soccer, basketball, or rugby, you can bet on your favourite teams and players.
In addition to sports betting, Global Academic Programs offer students the chance to expand their knowledge and skills in a variety of fields. From language immersion programs to internships with international companies, there are countless opportunities for students to gain a truly global perspective.
By participating in a Global Academic Program and exploring the world of sports betting, students can develop a more nuanced understanding of the international landscape. They can also gain valuable experience and skills that will help them succeed in their future careers. So, if you're interested in expanding your horizons and pursuing new experiences, consider exploring the world of Global Academic Programs and sports betting today!

As a result of a bilateral agreement between Sweden and the United States on cooperation in cancer research, the Swedish Research Council will contribute to the GAP 2018 Conference with an open session on Wednesday 16 May. The two countries will also take the opportunity to hold round table talks to elaborate on the forms of research cooperation.
