The SGO BRIDGES Research Initiative is a new, longitudinal clinical trials workshop for early career investigators with the aim of developing the next generation of trialists who will lead investigator-initiated and cooperative group gynecologic cancer clinical studies. It is designed to bridge the gap between translational scientists and clinical trialists in gynecologic oncology by providing formal training for early-career investigators in clinical trial design, connecting participants with expert mentors, and supporting the development of novel clinical trials.
Accepted early-career investigators will be part of an exclusive cohort and participate in a comprehensive workshop led by expert faculty. This is a unique opportunity to learn advanced skills in clinical trial design, develop professional connections, kickstart an academic career, and impact the future of gynecologic oncology research and treatment.
The course launched in January 2023, includes a small cohort of early-career investigators. Programming includes in-person symposia, twice-monthly Zoom didactics with course faculty, and small-group trial development sessions where scholars:
- meet with expert mentors and peers
- identify unmet clinical needs in gynecologic oncology and design novel clinical trials
- develop strategies to integrate correlative translational studies with clinical protocols
- develop a clinical trial design of their own.
