The annual DKTK School of Oncology Young Academics Conference offers the unique possibility for School of Oncology fellows to get to know fellow researchers as well as proven experts from all partner sites and discuss their own cancer research project in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere. This event provides the opportunity to continuously built-up and expand the nation-wide cancer research network and to participate in additional trainings/workshops on cancer research as well as career-development specific topics.
The sixth meeting of the DKTK School of Oncology fellows was jointly held with the fellows of the DKFZ PostDoc Network (PDN) on November 4 – 5, 2019 at DKFZ. The retreat gave the opportunity to expand the network of young cancer researcher by presenting their own work and many socializing events. Furthermore, the young talents were invited to a variety of workshops, e.g. on visualization of scientific data, how to apply for external funding and career advice. One highlight represented the PEI-DKTK information day on the regulatory processes of clinical trials with 10 experts from the Paul-Ehrlich-Institute and the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM).
