The annual Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop is a week-long course designed to educate and train early-career investigators in the best practices of clinical trial design and provide access to experienced clinical investigators from different institutions and countries with expertise across all areas of clinical research.
The Workshop is organised by the European Organisation of Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), and American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and has provided training to nearly 1700 investigators from all over the world since its inception in 1999.
The Workshop is offered to early-career investigators in all disciplines working the field of oncology who are nearing completion of their training or have recently begun their initial faculty positions and is designed to address the needs today, while maintaining flexibility to implement changes to train early-career investigators on how to conduct effective clinical trials in the future. In addition, it enables the development of peer-to-peer and mentoring relationships to enhance future career development.
80 students are selected using a competitive application process that consists of a protocol concept, personal statement, and support from an existing mentor. Those accepted to the Workshop will have access to world-renowned faculty members who, through the course of the Workshop, will help students develop concept sheets into IRB-ready clinical trials, ready for submission at their own institutions.
