Background:

This workshop provides a forum for discussion of anti-cancer agent development and imparts the knowledge necessary to enable successful early-career clinical researchers to become expert in the entire spectrum of drug development. 
 

Workshop Objectives:

  • Expedite the development and validation processes for new anticancer and cancer prevention agents.
  • Educate investigators, so new agents may be made available to patients at a more efficient rate more rapidly in the future.
  • Improve understanding of cancer drug development strategies to lead to a series of pivotal clinical trials demonstrating efficacy and patient benefit.

Who Should Attend:

  • Industry: Registrants should be involved in drug development.
  • Government: Registrants should be employed by a U.S. government agency and be involved in oncology drug discovery or development. 
  • Academic: Registrants should be employed by a recognized academic institution and be involved or have an interest in oncology drug discovery and/or development. Previous or current experience in the conduct of clinical trials is helpful, but not required.
  • Advocates: Consumer and/or patient advocates should be sponsored by a nationally recognized advocacy organization or foundation. Advocates should have a background in clinical trial design and the role of the advocate in the development process.
