Application Details

Applications for this workshop are now closed.

Who should apply? 

The organizers are primarily seeking applicants who are motivated to build a career as a physician-scientist in translational cancer research:  the exciting research front at the interface between basic research and clinical investigations. Ideal candidates are physicians in any stage of laboratory training, clinical fellows in any oncology subspecialty, and those with an MD, PhD degree returning to the lab after clinical training. These applicants should select the “Oncology fellow or resident” option in the application. 

The organizers will also accept applications for up to five positions reserved for senior scientists. Senior scientists are defined as physicians or clinical scientists who are currently transitioning to faculty positions or have already embarked on academic careers. These applicants should select the “Senior scientist” option in the application. 

The AACR is committed to increasing the participation of traditionally underrepresented investigators, as identified by the NCI, in cancer and biomedical research. Individuals from these groups are strongly encouraged to submit applications.
