21st Annual University of Chicago Developmental Therapeutics Symposium

The goal of this activity is to help consortium members to assimilate requirements of new studies, review synthesized data from completed studies, discuss the novel investigational agents available from the National Cancer Institute and other sponsors, describe the rational for and results of studies that include new targeted agents for the treatment of patients with advanced and rare disease. This will enable participants, as applicable, to become stronger leaders in oncology research, provide new treatments for cancer patients and provide operations/administrative support for current and future oncology clinical trials, which will lead to improved outcomes for patients suffering from cancer.
