Are you a dedicated early career scientist or clinician with a passion for advancing ovarian cancer research?

Here’s the opportunity to be part of the 15th International Forum on Ovarian Cancer organised by Ovarian Cancer Action, the leading ovarian cancer research funding charity in the UK. This prestigious event brings together the brightest minds in the field to explore recent advancements and chart the course for the future priorities of ovarian cancer research. With the shared goal of more women surviving ovarian cancer.

About the forum

For over 25 years, Ovarian Cancer Action have organised these international meetings to unite the world’s leading scientists and clinicians in the ovarian cancer research community. The event is unique and different from a typical research conference as we create an environment for collaboration, non-competitiveness and creative discussion. This meeting will publish a 10 year update to the highly cited 2015 Nature Reviews Cancer article co-written by all delegates that attended the 13th forum. This paper will set out the future priorities in ovarian cancer to help towards more women surviving the disease.

Application details

We invite applications from early career researchers (Post-doc, MD or PhD, who have not yet started their own group or faculty) for 5 coveted HHMT Travelling Fellowships. To apply, submit a 500 word abstract highlighting the background, methodology and the results of your original research. Alongside a concise two page CV.

Selection process

Fellows will be chosen by our scientific programme committee. If selected, you’ll have the chance to present your own work at the forum, with the best contribution earning a prize.

Financial support

Ovarian Cancer Action is committed to supporting your journey. We will cover your travel and accommodation expenses to ensure your full participation in this enriching event. Attendees must stay for the whole meeting.
