New to the Cancer Immunotherapy Winter School for 2021 is the SITC Clinical Immuno-Oncology Network (SCION) Workshop. This portion of the program will enable those working in the field of cancer immunotherapy, including, but not limited to, clinical fellows, junior attendings, PhD scientists and Industry representatives, to develop their own immunotherapy clinical trial protocols with the help of experts in the field. SCION participants will be determined through an application process.Through hands-on breakouts, accepted applicants will work intimately in small groups. Each group will consist of eight students paired with three dedicated faculty, including two clinicians/scientists and a statistician.
