Concept Workshop

A Concept Workshop will be held at Breast Cancer Trials’ (BCT) 42nd Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), which is aimed at providing an opportunity for BCT members and non-members to present new research ideas.

The workshop will involve a presentation of each new research concept, followed by discussion and feedback from the audience, to test the idea for relevance, scientific merit, feasibility and interest. The audience will include BCT Scientific Advisory Committee members, prominent BCT researchers, Consumer Advisory Panel, ASM speakers and senior BCT staff.

This workshop will determine which ideas have the strength to move forward to a more formal stage of BCT’s concept process, which will involve working with members of BCT’s Scientific Advisory Committee and associated working parties. Research concepts that have scientific merit and will enhance BCT’s research program, may also be supported through BCT’s discretionary funding opportunities.
