DoD Ovarian Cancer, Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial Academy – Early-Career Investigator Award

Application Due Date
Brief Description

In FY23, the OCRP established a new academy, the Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial Academy (OCCTA), which will focus on clinical trial research in ovarian cancer. The intent of the OCCTA is to enhance knowledge within next generation of Early-Career Investigators (ECIs) in clinical trial research and to produce effective treatments and cures for ovarian cancer. The OCCTA will bring together established investigators (the Academy Dean and Assistant Dean), established Career Guides (mentors), and a group of ECIs/Scholars to conduct successful, highly productive clinical trials in ovarian cancer. The OCCTA strives to develop successful, highly productive ovarian cancer clinical trialists in a collaborative research and career development environment, providing intensive mentoring, national networking, collaborations, and a peer group for junior clinical trialists. The OCCTA, through its Leadership, provides for professional and leadership development of the ECIs to include skills and competencies needed to execute clinical trials.
