Travel grants available in limited number. ‘Science for advocates’ will be a 2-day interactive workshop (Friday afternoon till Sunday lunch-time) with a combination of lectures, independent and group work. To ensure effective communication, the workshop size will be limited to 35-40 European Cancer patient advocates. Participation is upon application only.

Advocates will have the opportunity to suggest a relevant scientific study of their interest as a test case for the workshop. Otherwise, ESMO faculty will be asked to name one recent relevant study per cancer field.

During the weekend, participants will have the opportunity to directly apply learned content to their study of interest, including the statistical background and the calculation of the ESMO MCBS for that therapy, and generate an infographic representation of the content.

Biomedical research scientists and professionals with successful careers contribute to better research and improved outcomes for patients. Effective continuing professional development can be the catalyst to success for both individual careers and medical advances.

The Lifelong Learning in the Biomedical Sciences Conference 2017 will build on the outcomes and experiences of the 2016 Conference, extending to new topics and a wider audience. The conference will incorporate talks, hands-on workshops, and networking and poster sessions.

This second EMBL conference on Lifelong Learning in the Biomedical Sciences will bring together diverse stakeholders from across the academic, industrial, professional and training sectors to share best practice and actively shape the landscape of continuing professional development in the biomedical sciences. We call upon all who are interested in engaging to shape this future.
