Summer School in Translational Cancer Research

when 6 October 2019 - 11 October 2019
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 1000

Education with a focus on translational cancer research is still an unmet need. To cover that need, the Summer School in Translational Cancer Research will bring together PhD students, postdocs, and researching clinicians (residents) from the entire research continuum.

The Summer School is offered under the umbrella of Cancer Core Europe (CCE), organized in cooperation with the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg, as well as the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK).

It will give examples of research areas covering the continuum from basic through clinical research, to what is needed for an adoption into the health care system and outcomes research.

Well-esteemed lecturers will give overview presentations and be available for discussions. An important goal of the Summer School is the interaction between participants coming from both preclinical laboratories and clinical centers.
We aim at stimulating interactions for multidisciplinary collaborations at an international level. Participants will be given the opportunity to present their research projects and data by oral or poster presentations.
