ACED Annual Early Detection Summer School

Save the Date: Monday Sept. 5 through Friday Sept. 8, 2023

The Early Detection Summer School is an immersive and engaging online program that covers themes relevant to cancer early detection research. The 2023 ACED Online Summer School will be delivered virtually, focusing on the central research question of "We've discovered a potential biomarker for cancer early detection—what's next?" The school is aimed at Ph.D. students and early career researchers of all stages, and will cover the steps from initial biomarker discovery in the validation, through to development and translation of early detection of cancer testing. Presenters include international experts on a variety of early detection-related topics, and may include research presentations, panel discussions or debates, members of the public and patient representatives, and opportunities to network with peers from different academic and industry organizations.

The 2023 ACED Online Summer School will be held Monday, September 4 through Friday, September 8, 2023, from 8 to 11 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. Further details on the program and registration will be available shortly.


ACED Summer School serves as a platform to access world-class scientists and professionals in this growing field of research. Join this expanding community of thought leaders as they tackle the world’s highest aim: detecting early, and eventually eliminating, cancer.
