Conquer Cancer®, the ASCO Foundation, hosted its fifth annual Scientific and Career Development Retreat on October 29 and 30, 2019, at ASCO Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. The event encourages networking and scientific collaboration among Young Investigator Award (YIA) and Career Development Award (CDA) recipients and provides attendees opportunities to learn from and interact with distinguished speakers on several career development topics.
According to a 2015 YIA recipient and three-time retreat attendee, “The retreat overall felt very crisp. A useful amount of scientific and career information was packed into a compact time, which was brief enough not to feel burdensome to take off from regular work.” ■
