The next translational research workshop from the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) takes place on October 26 - 31, 2014, in Boston, MA.

The Translational Cancer Research for Basic Scientists Workshop will provide basic research scientists with a better understanding of translational research, teach them how to adapt their research for maximum clinical impact and help them transition into a new career in translational cancer medicine. This innovative workshop addresses many aspects of translational research including leading multidisciplinary teams, working collaboratively and effectively with industry partners, recognizing the unique needs and environment of the clinic and clinical laboratories, dealing with the regulatory and compliance issues in translational science, and understanding the perspective of the patient in order to place research questions into a broader context. During the course of the week, attendees will gain perspective and background knowledge of the disease from translational scientists in academia and industry, clinicians and patients, while learning about the latest methods and approaches in cutting-edge translational cancer research.

Registration is scheduled to open in mid-March. Please check back for additional details.
