Highlights from previous Conquer Cancer Council Annual Meetings:

  • The second Annual Meeting discussed how the oncology community can rethink clinical research, particularly as it relates to pragmatic and adaptive trials. Expert faculty and panel discussants spoke about meaningful data collection in oncology trials, the role of pragmatic and adaptive trials in evidence generation and patient-focused drug development.
