  • Information and application details for the 2015 ASCO/AACR Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop will be available in early January. The application deadline is Friday, March 20, 2015.

For those protocols using agents from a pharmaceutical company that are not FDA approved for the disease under study, the final application requires a letter of commitment from the collaborating company stating that drug will be supplied for the proposed trial or a copy of the correspondence with the company suggesting their likely support of the trial. Priority will be given to applicants that have a clear letter of support that is uploaded with the application (preferably a letter of commitment, but at minimum, a letter of intent).

Questions?: Please contact Dean A. Post, AACR Associate Director, Program Development at dean.post@aacr.org. 

Supported by a generous grant from the National Cancer Institute.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
