The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is pleased to announce that it will host an educational series, entitled “Spotlight on Clinical Trials,” that spotlights clinical trials focused on cholangiocarcinoma. This web-based educational series provides the cholangiocarcinoma community with awareness and education of available cholangiocarcinoma clinical trials around the world. The educational series launches on 19 February 2010 at 11:00 a.m. EST with a Clinical Trials 101 webinar, featuring guest speaker Dr. Jack Welch of the National Cancer Institute. Thereafter, the Spotlight on Clinical Trials will provide focused webinars spotlighting individual clinical trials directed to cholangiocarcinoma.

Click here to reserve your seat in our Clinical Trials 101 Webinar.

The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation invites interested sponsors of active and completed cholangiocarcinoma clinical trials to contact us if you wish for your clinical trial to be featured in one of the Spotlight on Clinical Trials webinars. To participate in this series of webinars, The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation requests that interested sponsors prepare educational materials that are compatible with a web-based seminar, and serve as guest speaker for the webinar. The primary audience for this education series is the patient and caregiver community. Interested parties should note that participation in the Spotlight on Clinical Trials educational series requires that the materials and discussion be recorded so that it can be published for future viewing on The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation and the CanLiv: The Hepatobiliary Cancers websites. To enquire about participation in one of the webinars, please contact Sara Hinkley at sara.hinkley@cholangiocarcinoma.org.
