SCIENTIFIC SESSION FORMATS


The Workshop Scientific Program includes three educational formats to serve a variety of didactic needs:

Lectures and Panel Discussions on specific topics presented by experts in the field. These talks give participants an essential overview of the field and of the principles of design and conduct of high-quality clinical trials.

Small Group Discussion Sessions on special topics such as clinical endpoints for new anticancer agents, laboratory correlates in clinical trials, and clinical pharmacology. These sessions provide an opportunity for the in-depth discussion of topics of special interest to clinical investigators that address the complexities of different trial types and present career-enhancing interactions with experts. These sessions will be presented on Sunday and Wednesday and will be limited in size to maximize information exchange.

Protocol Development Sessions during which each participant develops an actual clinical trial protocol. This exercise allows students to apply the lessons being learned in the Workshop to their own programs and to receive detailed critiques of their protocols from experienced scientists.
