THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING IN THIS SITUATION. WE WILL SOON START TO PLAN OUR 2021 SUMMER SCHOOL AND HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN! FOR UPDATES, PLEASE CHECK OUR WEBSITE REGULARLY. ***
Education with a focus on translational cancer research is still an unmet need. To cover that need, the Summer School in Translational Cancer Research was initiated in 2011 by the EurocanPlatform. Since 2016, the course has been hosted annually by Cancer Core Europe and the German Cancer Research Center, organized by the National Center for Tumor Diseases Heidelberg, and supported by the German Cancer Consortium as well as others.
The Summer School covers a broad spectrum of topics ranging from basic and clinical research, to the implementation of scientific insights into the health care system. Esteemed lecturers give overview presentations and are available for discussions. An important goal is the interaction between participants as well as speakers, coming from both preclinical laboratories and clinical centers worldwide. The Summer School aims at stimulating interactions to foster multidisciplinary collaborations at an international level. Participants have the opportunity to present their research projects and data in oral or poster presentations.
