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 18 years ago 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.

This well-recognised and CME accredited workshop is an event going into its 19th edition. It is 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).

Since 1999, this annual workshop has been held in the last full week of June. The participants propose a clinical trial concept when applying to the MCCR Workshop, complete the writing of the protocol throughout the course of 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, industry partners 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. Supporting this Workshop will strategically further industry partners’ corporate social responsibility goals.

Industry partners are invited to enlist as supporters and contribute by enabling young and promising scientists to participate in this Workshop.
