The Ming Hsieh Institute at USC plays a unique role in funding nanomedicine and targeted immunotherapeutic multi-disciplinary research to improve the lives of patients with cancer. By bringing together faculty from engineering, medicine, the sciences and pharmacy, the institute seeks to cultivate an environment of creativity and collaboration that accelerates translational research at USC.

To this end, the Office of Research will hold a MHI Symposium on Moving Cancer Research Into Clinical Trials on Friday, October 19, 2018 from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. The institute’s founder and USC alumnus Ming Hsieh will be in attendance, as well as a special keynote speaker. An invitation with a link to RSVP for this event will go out via email to prospective attendees.

I was told it was filled to capacity and turned away because I was unable to rsvp. I couldn't find the invitation in my email, though I had received one earlier in the month. My colleagues saw me at the gate and told me later that there was plenty of room and empty spaces. I told the person who I spoke with at the entrance table that I wouldn't eat any lunch etc...but they insisted that the symposium was filled to capacity.
I understand how critical rsvp's are and I understand that budgets are difficult to maintain and that policies are important too. However the fact that I was unable to rsvp and join my colleagues from my lab is confusing and that this issue wasn't considered when I asked to be allowed in confuses me.
I would like to be able to review the symposium...I heard it was very interesting and thought provoking but I wasn't allowed to attend.
