For 2020 TROG Cancer Research are excited to be hosting a concept development workshop prior to our ASM. The workshop is open to all TROG members (both full or affiliate) who have a great clinical research idea that could be developed into a clinical trial concept. The workshop follows the highly successful ACORD workshop format and will be supported by Faculty from ACORD and TROG Cancer Research. Participants will be asked to come with an idea for a radiation oncology or interventional oncology clinical research study and then develop this idea into a persuasive one-page concept outline during the workshop. Our TROG members, especially junior members, are encouraged to utilise this new opportunity at the TROG 2020 ASM.
