Conference Brochure

High-Impact Cancer Research is organized by Harvard Medical School (HMS) and will be held from Nov 04, 2019 - Oct 31, 2020 at Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America.

Who Are We Looking For?
This Harvard Medical School program is open to both new and seasoned researchers including professionals in fundamental and clinical research, population health leaders of cancer focused enterprises including scientific, policy and financial top-flight trainees. Prospective students should hold a master’s degree in their field of study, a doctoral degree such as PhD, or PsyD and/ or a professional degree such as an MD, MBBS, DDM, DMD, PharD, DNP or foreign equivalent degree.

With so many new and promising strategies and recent developments, the opportunities to produce and enable high-impact cancer research are unprecedented. Recent advances continue to expand and reshape our views of the essential features of cancer. We are learning important new aspects of how cancers develop, how to find and diagnose cancers earlier, how to design and unleash powerful new anti-cancer therapies, and how to evaluate cancer risk and even prevent tumors from arising. These advances are delivering useful, productive changes that lead to better cancer outcomes.

High-Impact Cancer Research is the acclaimed Harvard Medical School post-graduate certificate program for cancer research. It teaches the principles and skills shaping today’s most important cancer research activities. Participants learn the new fundamentals of a wide spectrum of cancer science and the skills necessary to envision, design and lead cutting-edge cancer research projects that can contribute to these changes.

This program is designed to help participants make high-impact contributions that lead to better cancer outcomes. Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to:
• Understand the molecular and cellular basis of cancer development, detection, diagnosis, treatment and prevention
• Learn about key advances within the context of clinical presentation of various human tumors and ways it is currently being used to develop the growing set of therapeutic and preventive approaches to fight cancer
• Hear about new cancer treatments from the individuals who developed the therapies and are testing them in ongoing clinical trials
• Hone skills necessary to identify and answer key questions needed to make future contributions and to effectively communicate your ideas and conclusions
