SWOG names 5 cancer researchers outstanding Young Investigators
Date:9/8/2010

ANN ARBOR, Mich. The Southwest Oncology Group, or SWOG, one of the nation's largest cancer clinical trials networks, has selected five talented researchers who are early in their careers for its 2010 Young Investigator Training Course (YITC). These five will attend a three-day workshop September 13 15 in Seattle, WA for intensive training in how to design and conduct cancer clinical trials.

To date this nationally acclaimed program has provided intensive mentorship and career support to 56 investigators. With detailed instruction in protocol development, trial management, and statistical analysis, the course is designed to build a cohort of trained clinical trial researchers with a thorough understanding of Group procedures and the ability to efficiently plan and execute high-priority studies, which in some cases might enroll thousands of patients at hundreds of treatment sites.

Each Young Investigator presents a research proposal as part of the application process, and those proposals are closely reviewed and refined during the workshop. Many of the proposals advanced in previous workshops have since been launched as studies with National Cancer Institute funding.

Costs of the Young Investigator program are paid for with a gift from The Hope Foundation (thehopefoundation.org), a philanthropic arm of the Southwest Oncology Group that raises funds for educational and research efforts.

Below are the names of the 2010 SWOG Young Investigators and descriptions of their proposals.
