Childhood Cancer Survivor Study 2021 Investigator Meeting 

The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) 2021 Investigator Meeting will discuss the long-term effects of cancer and therapy on childhood and adolescent cancer survivors. The CCSS is a resource for research for long-term outcomes and intervention approaches for the prevention and early detection of late effects. An introduction to the CCSS will be provided along with opportunities for researchers to utilize this unique NIH funded resource.

This meeting will be divided into two sessions. The Plenary session will begin at 9 am CDT and will feature update reports from the Principal Investigator, Specialized Support Centers, and Working Group Chairs as well as presentations by investigators who have utilized the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study cohort in their research.

Following the Plenary session there will be six Working Group Breakout sessions. These will be conducted concurrently, with three sessions at 1:30 pm and three sessions at 2:30 pm. This allows attendees to attend more than one session if desired.

The CCSS Investigator Meeting is open to any investigator interested in childhood cancer survivorship research. This year’s meeting will be held virtually. The link to access the meeting and additional instructions will be sent via the email address that is entered below during the registration process.

There is no fee for attendees, but we do ask that individuals register before the meeting.
