Day Two

The Comprehensive Cancer Research Training Program is an annual immersive course that invites high school, undergraduate, graduate, post-doctoral students (residents, clinical fellows, research fellows) and junior faculty members to take part in a free, unique, comprehensive introduction to the vanguard of current cancer research. 

This ambitious curriculum features daily plenary sessions on general topics followed by half-day sessions on two scientific themes, each featuring three to four presentations. Numerous nationally and internationally renowned Stanford faculty present didactic lectures and discussions on current topics of basic, translational and clinical cancer research.

Course Overview

The Comprehensive Cancer Research Training Program (CCRTP) course has been held since September 2007. This educational initiative has been exceedingly well received.

The Stanford Cancer Institute invites high school, undergraduate, graduate, post-doctoral students (residents, clinical fellows, research fellows) and junior faculty members to attend the annual Comprehensive Cancer Research Training Program.  In particular, trainees from the respective Schools of Medicine, Schools of Engineering and the Schools of Humanities and Sciences are encouraged to participate.  The Stanford Cancer Institute will host this course between Monday, March 29 and Tuesday, March 30 via Zoom.

This dynamic educational event features a plenary session on a topic of general interest every morning followed by sessions on scientific themes with three presentations each.  The didactic lectures on current topics of basic, translational and clinical cancer research are presented by nationally and internationally renowned faculty from Stanford University.  Each didactic lecture is followed immediately by a discussion.

Evaluation

At the end of the event, the participants are asked to evaluate the presentations.  After the course, the directors will send to the participants a limited number of questions allowing summative evaluations of the course.  Participants are strongly encouraged to provide feedback to the course directors.

Registration

Early registration is encouraged.  Attendees may register until March 26, 2021.  Registration is open and free to all attendees.
