The Workshop on Methods in Clinical Cancer Research is an educational programme that introduces junior oncologists in any oncology subspecialty to the principles of good clinical trial design. Established to reverse the decline in the numbers of clinical scientists, the MCCR Workshop aims to cultivate a proficient and flourishing research base to advance good quality cancer care by equipping future generations of clinical researchers with the essential skills and training to initiate and conduct better clinical and translational trial designs.
Jointly organised by ECCO (the European CanCer Organisation), AACR (the American Association for Cancer Research), EORTC (the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer) and ESMO (the European Society for Medical Oncology), this well recognised and CME accredited Workshop will mark its 20th edition in 2018, ratifying the importance of collaboration to ensure good quality cancer care.
Since 1999, this annual workshop has been held in the penultimate week of June. The participants propose a clinical trial concept when applying to the MCCR Workshop, complete the writing of the protocol during the Workshop, and then implement the protocol upon returning home.
Such an enterprise can only be fully successful if all important stakeholders take part. As such, Medical Societies are also invited to be part of this project and show involvement in an educational programme that will ultimately contribute to better research and improved public health worldwide and mobilise young and promising scientists.
