  • Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2014 AACR/ASCO Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop. The application deadline was Monday, March 17.

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 Post, Associate Director, Program Development at dean.post@aacr.org.

"The workshop has cemented my interest in an academic career. It was an amazing mentorship program to us and made me overall excited about my research."
