Several methods workshops planned for first two days of meeting
The AACR Annual Meeting 2023 program kicks off with more than 65 methods workshops and educational sessions on Friday, April 14, and Saturday, April 15. Access to sessions is available to all registrants by purchasing the Educational Program Pass during registration.
The 16 methods workshops are designed to provide a foundation of knowledge in rapidly developing areas in basic, clinical, and translational cancer research. Led by experienced faculty, these workshops cover some of the hottest topics in cancer research, including clinical trial design, artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, and data resources for cancer research.
Among this year’s workshops is the three-part program Clinical Trial Design in a Diverse World. In part one of the workshop, Aligning the Needs of a Clinical Trial with the Most Appropriate Design, speakers will discuss how to make phase I trials relevant by aligning need with design, trial designs for answering phase II questions, and considerations for designing clinical trials in the post-PD1 immunotherapy era.
In part two, Challenges in Clinical Trial Enrollment, faculty will provide an overview of barriers to patient enrollment and diversity plans to improve enrollment in cancer clinical trials. They will discuss how to increase clinical trial accrual of under-represented patients by shifting the power differential in the patient-provider relationship. The presenters will also describe innovative strategies to address enrollment barriers and enhance participation among underserved populations, and review how technology and decentralized clinical trials processes can be used to modernize trial protocol.
In part three, Biomarkers in Clinical Trials, the speakers will discuss the standardization, prioritization, and optimal use of advanced molecular studies in clinical cancer research; describe the incorporation of proof-of-mechanism pharmacodynamic biomarkers and predictive biomarkers of response in early-phase clinical trials; and provide statistical and practical guidance for biomarker studies.
Here is the schedule of all 16 methods workshops:
