Office Hours with Industry Partners in San Francisco

by Guest Blogger Lee Ellis, M.D., SWOG Vice-Chair for Translational Medicine

Mar 13, 2015 - In order to better understand targets and pathways and how to use this knowledge to formulate innovative clinical trials in oncology, we must have open discussions with our colleagues in industry and pharma. In this regard, we have arranged to have several of our colleagues in industry host "office hours" at the meeting in San Francisco on Friday, May 1. These industry clinical investigators and scientists will be able to work with us to help determine the best use of agents and biomarkers in formulating the next generation of clinical trials to be led by SWOG.

Ahead of these conversations, our colleagues from industry are providing lists of drugs and biomarkers that they wish to discuss with SWOG investigators in the planning of clinical trials. Some of these are detailed below. Others will be posted soon to the SWOG Group Meeting web page.

Thank you to our colleagues and collaborators in industry who will be attending the SWOG Group Meeting to help strengthen the channels of communication between their organizations and the publicly funded National Clinical Trials Network. These types of partnerships are vital if we hope to continue making progress in cancer care for our patients.
