Cancer Core Europe (CCE) Summer School in Translational Cancer Research 2021









*** Note: we are currently planning the Summer School 2021 as on-site event in Albufeira, Portugal. However, due to the continuing uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will also be prepared to offer a reduced program in a virtual format. ***


Cancer Core Europe (CCE) Virtual Keynote Session on Translational Cancer Research on October 13th, 2020

For connecting the dots in translational cancer research also in 2020, a year in which the Summer School unfortunately could not take place, we have organized a CCE Virtual Keynote Session on Translational Cancer Research in the afternoon of October 13th, 2020. 

For this major educational event, we could win the following four outstanding speakers:

  • Núria López-Bigas, ICREA Research Professor at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine Barcelona (IRB Barcelona), Group Leader at Barcelona Biomedical Genomics Lab, Spain
  • Jean-Charles Soria, General Director of Gustave Roussy, Medical Oncologist and Professor of Medicine at Paris-Saclay University, Member of the CCE Board of Directors, France
  • Emile E. Voest, Medical Director of the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Chair of the CCE Board of Directors, The Netherlands
  • Robert A. Weinberg, Founding Member of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and Professor of Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

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.
