The SITC Sparkathon – Emerging Leaders, Igniting Innovation is an exciting opportunity for early career professionals seeking to participate in new research that contributes to the cancer immunotherapy field and the society as a whole.
A group of 29 emerging leaders will explore the critical hurdles that have challenged this field for years. Once projects have been determined, teams will formulate plans to solve the major issues. Participants will have access to leadership experts who will assist teams in developing their proposals for successful implementation.
Projects will be presented to a panel of SITC leaders who will select the top proposals for implementation.
But first ...
You can help early career scientists tackle the hurdles facing cancer immunotherapy by supporting this innovative retreat.
Thirty emerging leaders will gather in the August 2017 to formulate strategies to solve major issues facing our field. They will work in teams with business leaders to refine their plans and compete for $175,000. The best idea presented will advance to the execution phase and receive funding to move the field forward.
