SWOG Meeting Office Hours and Round Table Sessions Are Almost Full

by Guest Blogger Lee Ellis, M.D., SWOG Vice-Chair for Translational Medicine

Sep 19, 2014 - Five weeks out from the fall Group Meeting, most of our office hour and round table sessions are fully registered!

Our "Career Development Opportunities in the Experimental Therapeutics and Rare Cancers Committee" round table with Dr. Kurzrock is now full, as are our "International Trial Participation" round table with Drs. Baker and Valdivieso, and both sessions of Dr. Eng's "Navigating SWOG for Young Investigators."

Interest in office hours with industry partners has also been high. Not only are the one-on-one appointments with research leaders from Genentech/Roche and Novartis all now scheduled, but the open office hours they will be holding Friday afternoon are also well registered. And as of this moment there is only one appointment slot still open with the folks from Foundation Medicine.

Office hours with our Cold Spring Harbor and Jackson Laboratory partners are filling up, though a few appointments are still available. Several office hour slots are also still open to discuss issues of biospecimen collection and the use of the SWOG Biorepository. Remember that you can sign up for available times via the SWOG Group Meeting registration form.

Thank you to the leaders and experts conducting these sessions for taking their mentoring responsibility so seriously and for their outstanding commitment to collaborative research! And thank you to our members who have recognized the value of these face-to-face opportunities. This is a testament to your high levels of professional commitment and engagement, and our patients will be the ultimate beneficiaries. Please don't hesitate to forward additional ideas for Office Hours and Meet the Professor sessions for the next SWOG meeting in the spring.

Exciting P.S.: I just learned that Dr. Lori Minasian, Deputy Director for the NCI's Division of Cancer Prevention, and a long-time friend of SWOG, will lead a round table session on "Toxicity reduction and symptom management in clinical trials" from 2 - 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct 24. The session has just been added to the registration form, and it's sure to fill up quickly, so register now!
