Kids First Spring Webinar 2022: Empowering Discovery through a Wide Variety of Data Types

We invite you to register and join the Kids First Spring Webinar 2022, to hear updates from the Kids First program staff, as well as research findings from a Kids First investigators, Dr. Phil Lupo who will discuss "Cancer Risk in Children with Birth Defects: How Kids First Can Move Observation into Understanding." The Kids First Data Resource Center will also be present to share updates on the latest tools and resources in development within the Kids First Data Resource.

Open to all members of the community, this is a virtual event, and an excellent opportunity for patient communities and researchers interested in childhood cancers and structural birth defects to hear from Kids First investigators and data experts. While completing registration, you can also submit questions in advance for the question and answers sessions following each presentation. Questions can also be submitted to the Kids First program via email at KidsFirst@od.nih.gov
