DURHAM, N.C., July 18, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Society for Translational Oncology (STO) is currently accepting
Each year, STOFF brings together a faculty of prominent scientists, clinicians, ethicists, industry representatives, and biotech investors to act as mentors to oncology fellows and junior faculty with an interest in translational research. Fellows are drawn from leading medical, surgical, radiation, and pediatric oncology groups as well as surgical subspecialty fellowships from the United States and abroad. Since its founding in 1996 by Bruce Chabner, MD, STOFF has provided unique mentoring and networking opportunities to over 400 early-career oncologists.
STOFF is led by co-chairs Dr. Keith Flaherty (Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School), Dr. Stacey Berg (Baylor College of Medicine), and Dr. Ross Levine (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center). The interactive workshop-style STOFF experience will be enhanced in 2018 with dedicated office hours with these distinguished co-chairs, providing additional time for one-on-one mentoring.
STOFF has earned international acclaim for its focused, practical, and personal tutorials preparing oncologists to advance cancer drug development. Presentations cover topics ranging from drug target and biomarker validation, to design of translational clinical trials, to regulatory perspectives on oncology drug development. Participants are also tutored in guidelines for good basic research as well as the practices of successful grant-writing. Breakout sessions, Q&A periods, and a daily mentoring clinic provide ample opportunity for interaction between faculty and mentees.
Application materials can be found at: https://www.sto-online.org/STO-Fellows-Forum Tuition expenses, meeting materials, housing, and meals will be covered for fellow-level participants. Junior faculty (within 5 years of training completion) are also eligible to apply, but will be responsible for their own travel and accommodations.
