AACR-ASCO Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop


The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), after careful consideration and comprehensive evaluation of currently available information related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, have made the difficult decision to terminate the AACR/ASCO Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop, originally scheduled for July 25-31, 2020, in Vail, Colorado.

We recognize that this unique program which offers a mix of education, training, and mentorship is highly valued by the cancer research community. Although the 2020 Workshop will not take place, we will be extending the eligibility by one (1) year in order to allow anyone who was eligible for the 2020 Workshop to apply again for the 2021 Workshop.

AACR and ASCO appreciate your patience and understanding during this unfortunate situation. If you have any questions, please email [email protected].

Our heartfelt sympathies go out to everyone impacted by this global health crisis.
