The Core Curriculum returns to the program. It is designed for early-career drug development investigators and will be taught by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) medical officers and senior scientists. It will cover all aspects of clinical studies: preclinical and clinical science, statistical structure of trials, ethical requirements and regulatory considerations. Application to the Core Curriculum is required (see instructions in Registration/Sign In). Preference is given to early-career academic investigators and fellows.

Core Curriculum participants must also attend the Breakfast Discussion Groups on May 3 and 4.

Who Should Attend

The AAADV Workshop is designed for scientists and consumer advocates with clinical trial experience interested in developing agents for the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of cancer. Individuals with limited experience in the regular aspects of oncology drug development will benefit from the knowledge of and networking with more experienced investigators and advocates.

Participants Will:

  • Examine the most urgent issues and meaningful trends in anticancer agent development and
    validation.
  • Learn new approaches for diagnosing, treating and preventing cancer.
  • Benefit from a mix of small group lectures, moderated discussions, facilitated case studies of
    successful new drug applications and plenary lectures.
  • Network with researchers, regulators, patient advocates and others working on the frontlines of
    cancer research and treatment.
