On September 9, 2019 in Seattle, over 280 patients, family members, clinicians, scientists, pharmaceutical partners, and trainees from across the United States gathered for the 14th annual Merkel cell carcinoma Dinner Meeting.
The evening began with a bit of social gathering, beautiful music (violinists Paul Nghiem and Max Lee) as well as poster presentations and lab tours. Dinner was then served, followed by a Presentation in the auditorium. The night capped off with a lovely dessert and coffee. Videos of the event and presentations are available below.
