This CCE educational event will cover translational cancer research topics for young, ambitious researchers with a medical and/or scientific background at different stages of their careers. The Summer School is open to participants from all over the world. During this two half-day course, participants are offered workshops and talks by renowned speakers from different disciplines of the entire cancer research continuum, with a special focus on personalized cancer medicine. The program facilitates networking and includes interactive sessions. Some slots for the Case Study / Molecular Tumor Board workshop on day two are reserved for participants of CCE centers. Remaining slots will be given in a first come, first served manner, considering an adequate distribution between countries.

Usually the Summer School takes place as a one-week event in Portugal. For safety in planning and health in context of the pandemic, we have decided to offer a high-level, interactive virtual event – to be able to enjoy science, training, and networking – without travelling, without risk. More information on CCE and the Summer School can be found at

The course is hosted by CCE and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), organized by the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg, and supported by the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK) as well as others.
