The Comprehensive Cancer Research Training Program is an annual two–day immersive course that invites graduate and postdoctoral students, residents, clinical fellows and research fellows to take part in a unique, comprehensive introduction to the vanguard of current cancer research.
This ambitious curriculum features daily plenary sessions on general topics followed by half-day sessions on two scientific themes, each featuring three to four presentations. Numerous nationally and internationally renowned Stanford faculty present didactic lectures and discussions on current topics of basic, translational and clinical cancer research.
The Canary Center at Stanford, founded in 2009 as the first research center in the world, entirely dedicated to cancer early detection, The Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University, a leader in precision cancer medicine, and Cancer Research UK, the largest independent funder of cancer research globally have formed an international collaboration to accelerate research in the early detection of cancer.
The goal of this unique trans-Atlantic agreement is to find lethal cancers as they’re forming so they can be treated more effectively. Survival increases significantly when the disease is treated at an early stage.
The collaboration also seeks to accelerate progress by breaking down barriers for scientists, including:
- A lack of cohorts of sufficient size and a shortage of clinical samples available for research
- Development and deployment of new technologies
- Lack of understanding of the biology of early cancer and technologies to detect its features
2019 conference topic list includes:
- Integrative Early Detection through multiple technologies
- Prognostic Early Detection
- Signals from beyond the tumor
- Integrative Susceptibility for Early Detection
- Fostering a translational mentality in Early Detection Research
This symposium brings together speakers from academia, industry and the FDA to discuss their perspectives on anticancer drug discovery and development.
One of the highlights of the symposium will be the poster session, which calls attention to the great research being done in translational oncology. Broad participation enriches this session, and students and scientists are encouraged to present their work. This poster session provides an excellent opportunity to publicly present recent science and to interact with members of many different academic organizations in the scientific community.

Posters will be on display for the entire day with a special poster viewing session taking place during lunch. Presenters should plan on being stationed by their work to answer questions during the poster viewing session. Only one poster can be submitted per person and that person must attend the symposium. Please bring your posters ready for display. A tack board will be provided to hang your poster, in addition to extra tacks. All posters must be removed by the end of the event. If you intend to present a poster, please send the presenter’s name and title and the title of the poster to Denise Baughman firstname.lastname@example.org.
