EVENT DESCRIPTION  
 
Event Type:  Workshop (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  Understanding the Role of Muscle and Body Composition in Studies of Cancer Risk and Prognosis in Cancer Survivors
 
Description:  NCI’s Epidemiology and Genomics Research Program (EGRP) is hosting a workshop, “Understanding the Role of Muscle and Body Composition in Studies of Cancer Risk and Prognosis in Cancer Survivors."

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scientists to discuss current research examining how body composition affects cancer outcomes and identify the research needed to inform recommendations for cancer survivors. The workshop will also identify key methodological challenges and approaches to optimize measurement and analysis, building on past examples studying sarcopenia, cachexia, and frailty in aging populations, to better understand the implications for cancer survivors.

A full agenda and other details can be found on the meeting website: https://epi.grants.cancer.gov/events/sarcopenia/
