STO Fellows' Forum (STOFF)

The Society for Translational Oncology Fellows' Forum (STOFF) is a 3-day intensive forum that brings together fellows and junior faculty within 5 years of training completion from the leading medical, surgical, and radiation oncology subspecialty fellowships to educate rising stars in translational cancer research.

The number of scholars selected for participation in this workshop will be limited to a total of 25 in order to have ample opportunity for one-on-one interface with the prestigious faculty as well as peer-to-peer networking.


To help meet the educational and health needs of today's society and future generations, STO is committed to speeding the discovery and translation of important new treatments in the field of cancer medicine to the practice of global oncology by:

  • Bringing knowledge and strategies for critical new developments in cancer treatment to the community oncologist;
  • Bridging the "translational gap" between discovery and delivery of care to the patient;
  • Providing educational activities to improve physician competencies and strategies for screening, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of patients with cancer.

STOFF's impact is global as its alumni will conduct research that will have worldwide influence.
