2023 Investigator Meeting

The Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS) 2023 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 days. The Plenary session 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. There will also be six Working Group Breakout sessions, which will be conducted concurrently.

The CCSS Investigator Meeting is open to any investigator interested in childhood cancer survivorship research. This year’s meeting will be held at the Emory Conference Hotel in Atlanta, GA.
