Henry Henderson III, PhD, and Justin Lo, MD, PhD, are members of the 2020-2021 inaugural class of FDA-AACR Oncology Educational Fellows.
This is the first year of the fellowship, a joint initiative of the Oncology Center of Excellence at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the American Association for Cancer Research.
The program, which has 20 fellows, is designed to promote scientific progress through the exchange of knowledge in oncology education, collaborative learning and research.
Through targeted educational activities and interactions with experts from the FDA Oncology Center of Excellence and the AACR, the fellows will increase their familiarity and experience with oncology drug development and the regulatory review process. Educational and networking events will be held virtually this year.
