Summer School in Translational Cancer Research, October 16 – 22, 2022, Portugal

The CCE Summer School in Translational Cancer Research is intended to provide an in-depth training of scientists and clinicians to gain a cross-disciplinary knowledge of areas of the entire cancer research continuum.

While esteemed lecturers coming from preclinical laboratories and clinical centres worldwide will broadly cover cancer research topics with a special focus on precision cancer medicine, networking activities will allow the informal exchange among participants and lecturers. Hands-on training in workshops (eg. on Molecular Tumor Boards and the CCE Tumor Board portal) will round off the program.

Registration is now open. Registration deadline is May 31.
