Event Overview
Welcome message:

An intensive week-long introduction to translational cancer research – including cancer medicine, the clinical cancer research environment, and collaborative team science – for basic scientists who are predoctoral students and postdoctoral fellows, early-career scientists, and senior scientists in transition to translational research.


This workshop is hosted in close collaboration with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Cancer Center, comprised of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health, and Massachusetts General Hospital.


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.


Previous workshops consisted of over 25 faculty members providing core didactic lectures, nearly 15 additional healthcare professionals participating as lab/discussion leaders, and more than 35 clinicians supervising offsite visits. We are excited to offer this outstanding educational program again, to promote the professional development of early-career investigators in translational cancer research.


Comments from previous attendees:


It is the single most influential workshop/conference I have attended.

This workshop has definitely altered my thoughts on basic cancer research from doing science to understand biological systems, to doing science with a purpose to understand relevant biological systems.

I was blown away by the passion, innovation, and diversity of both the teachers and the participants, and it reaffirmed my desire to succeed in this field. It was both realistic but hopeful in every aspect and made all of us look at cancer biology from at least five new perspectives. I feel I have taken an important step to establish myself as a scientist, and build the connections and ideas to effectively contribute to the field.

My experience at the workshop will definitely inform the projects I'm putting together now, as well as my long-term career goals.

This is perhaps the most educational and useful workshop I've been to.

This has been such an inspirational, informative, and novel experience. I am so grateful for this opportunity to meet the best of the scientists in the field, network with the faculty, and talk to them on a one-on-one basis. It is unimaginable to get this experience in a week. It has helped me to build my network with faculty and my peers and this is going to help me collaborate with them in the future to continue doing excellent translational research.

Keep this workshop going for future researchers.
