2023-24 BRIDGES Initiative

The SGO BRIDGES Research Initiative is a new, longitudinal clinical trials workshop for early career investigators. It is designed to bridge the gap between translational scientists and clinical trialists in gynecologic oncology by providing formal training for early-career investigators in clinical trial design, connecting participants with expert mentors, and supporting the development of novel clinical trials.

Curriculum to occur during the program timeline:
  • Block 1: Defining critical questions and research priorities in gynecologic oncology
  • Block 2: Building a foundation – preclinical studies and phase I trials
  • Block 3: Phase I to Phase II – Defining a cohort and endpoints
  • Block 4: Novel trial designs
  • Block 5: Phase III trials
  • Block 6: Patient reported outcomes
  • Block 7: Surgical trials
  • Block 8: Prevention trials
  • Block 9: Nuts and bolts of study initiation
  • Block 10: Funding opportunities and sponsorship


Learning Objectives

Participants will:
  • identify unmet clinical needs in gynecologic oncology and design novel clinical trials
  • develop strategies to integrate correlative translational studies with clinical protocols
  • develop a clinical trial design of their own
