Overview

The Society for Translational Oncology Fellows' Forum (STOFF) is a 3-day intensive meeting 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 format consists of didactic lectures, hot topics breakout sessions, and traditional Q & A. Participants will also have the unique opportunity to interact with the co-chairs during afternoon “office hours,” which will allow for open discussion of career development.

Selected applicants will be limited to a total of 25 in order to provide ample opportunity for one-on-one interface with the prestigious faculty as well as peer-to-peer networking.
