Translational Cancer Research for Basic Scientists Workshop

Application Procedure

Applications are no longer being accepted for this workshop. The application deadline was Monday, May 14, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.

Selection of Participants

The Program Committee will review and accept applications from predoctoral students (who will be in their fourth year or later at the time of this workshop), postdoctoral fellows, early-career scientists (those who are not postdoctoral fellows and who received their PhD on or after May 2013), and a limited number of senior scientists beyond the postdoctoral level (from academia or industry) who are in transition to translational research. Applicants are invited from academia and industry. The Committee will select a group of 50 individuals and base its decisions on materials submitted by the applicant and by the applicant’s sponsor (mentor, program supervisor, or department head). These documents will be evaluated both for the information they supply about the candidate and the assurances they provide for institutional support for transitioning into a career in translational research. Note that selection of workshop applicants will be conducted on a competitive basis as not all applicants can be accepted each year due to limited space. Unsuccessful applicants are encouraged to reapply the following year. Applicants will be notified of their status in mid-June.
