B. Have interest in clinical research and show commitment to devote time to clinical research in the years following the workshop
C. Be ready with a research concept (idea) which can be developed into a full-fledged research project

Each application should contain the following details:
1. Applicant details
2. Brief outline of the research idea
3. Applicant’s statement of purpose
4. Supervisor’s letter of support

The workshop committee will select 40 participants for the workshop. Preference will be given to early or mid-career level researchers from academic institutions who can demonstrate commitment to continuing research in oncology. Each application will be independently reviewed by two experts and a score will be awarded based on:
1. Applicant details
2. Brief outline of the research idea
3. Applicant’s statement of purpose
4. Supervisor’s letter of support

Selected participants will be notified by email. Participants will have to confirm their participation and pay the registration fees. Participation fees for the workshop have been highly subsidized, and hence, selected candidates should clearly confirm their participation; failure to take part in the workshop after confirming participation will automatically debar the candidate from future workshops. Accommodation (on a twin-sharing basis), food and transport from Mumbai to the venue will be arranged by the organizers (these expenses will be covered by the registration fees). Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements to Mumbai.

Applicants who are accepted for the workshop should come prepared to develop the clinical research concept submitted with their application into a complete clinical trial protocol during the course of the workshop. As timelines for completion of the various parts of the protocol are tight, participants should be ready with a background literature review and if available, their institution’s protocol and informed consent templates. All participants must bring a laptop computer to the workshop to facilitate completion of their daily assignments.
Attendance at all the workshop sessions is mandatory and certificates of completion will be issued only to those participants who complete these requirements.

Only selected participants need to pay the workshop fees
Participants from India:
Academic institutions: Indian Rupees 10,000/- only
Industry participants: Indian Rupees 1,50,000/- only
