Workshop overview

The annual Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop (MCCR) is a week-long course designed to educate and train early-career investigators in the best practices of clinical trial design and provide access to experienced clinical investigators from different institutions and countries with expertise across all areas of clinical research.

The Workshop is organised by the European Organisation of Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and has provided training to over 1900 investigators from all over the world since its’ inception in 1999.

Who should attend

The Workshop is offered to early-career investigators based in Europe (EU and non-EU), Mediterranean or Middle East regions working the field of oncology who are nearing completion of their training or have recently begun their initial faculty positions and is designed to address the needs of today, while maintaining flexibility to implement changes to train early-career investigators on how to conduct effective clinical trials in the future.

Workshop participation

This year, 80 early-career investigators will be selected using a competitive application process that consists of a protocol concept, personal statement, and support from an existing mentor. Those accepted to the Workshop will have access to world-renowned faculty members who, through the course of the Workshop, will help early-career investigators develop concept sheets into IRB-ready clinical trials, ready for submission at their own institutions. In addition, it enables the development of peer-to-peer and mentoring relationships to enhance future career development.
