The course will be organised over 5 days from June until December, with the first the fifth day as in person/hybrid meeting at KI in Stockholm and at KCL in London, respectively. Days 2-4 are virtual course days. The course focuses on how clinical epidemiology is a needed tool throughout the cancer care pathway in terms of research methodology. The course aims to develop the participants' understanding of clinical cancer epidemiology and how it can provide a methodology for researching prevention, early diagnosis and detection, treatment outcomes, and living with and beyond cancer. Please see here for more information and to register (deadline for registration is 10th of May, 2024). 


The course is organised by Professor Mieke Van Hemelrijck at KCL and Professor Martin Eklund at KI and contains lectures by a large number of internationally leading researchers.
