Selection Process

The workshop committee will select participants for the workshop. Preference will be given to early or mid-career level researchers from academic institutions who can demonstrate commitment to continuing research in oncology. Each application will be independently reviewed by two experts and a score will be awarded based on:

  • Applicant details.
  • Brief outline of the research idea.
  • Applicant’s statement of purpose.
  • Supervisor’s letter of support.

Selected Participants

Selected participants will be notified by email. Participants will have to confirm their participation and pay the registration fees. Participation fees for the workshop have been highly subsidized, and hence, selected candidates should clearly confirm their participation; failure to take part in the workshop after confirming participation will automatically debar the candidate from future workshops.

Applicants who are accepted for the workshop should be prepared to develop the clinical research concept submitted with their application into a complete clinical trial protocol during the course of the workshop. As timelines for completion of the various parts of the protocol are tight, participants should be ready with a background literature review and if available, their institution’s protocol and informed consent templates. All participants must have a laptop computer and a good internet connection during the workshop to enable attendance and completion of their daily assignments. Attendance at all the workshop sessions is mandatory and certificates of completion will be issued only to those participants who complete these requirements. Participants have to submit an undertaking, and a statement from their supervisor, that they will be on leave from their department during the workshop
