Group Meetings

Group-wide meetings of the ECOG-ACRIN Cancer Research Group (ECOG-ACRIN) occur twice a year and are open to researchers affiliated with member institutions, patient advocates who are members of ECOG-ACRIN’s various scientific committees, industry representatives, and invited individuals from external (non-member) organizations. Group meetings are closed to the public.


  • Present the latest in basic, clinical, and translational research by Group leaders in the areas of cancer prevention, imaging, diagnosis, and treatment
  • Provide a forum for academic inquiry among physicians, clinical research professionals, patient advocates, and others
  • Host education sessions on engaging patients and the public in the clinical research process
  • Reinforce compliance with Group policies and procedures
  • Offer non-CME training and education workshops for research professionals
