The 2012 Global Academic Programs conference was held at Holmenkollen Park Hotel in Oslo from May 14-16. The GAP Annual Conference provides a forum for faculty from MD Anderson and their sister institutions to develop collaborations and exchange research results and ideas. The event is held at MD Anderson in odd years and is hosted by a Sister Institution in even years. Starting in 2012, the GAP Annual Conference will travel every other year to a Sister Institution, rotating around different regions of the globe. The first external conference was hosted by the Norwegian Cancer Consortium (NCC), which includes Stavanger University Hospital, The Norwegian Radium Hospital at OUS, and the National Cancer Registry of Norway.
All plenary lectures and workshops were be filmed and many of the lectures are now available from webtv.oncolex.no (open the GAP2012 catalogue in the left hand margin)
