SIOP Epidemiology and Outcomes Network: Leadership Nominations are Welcome

Dear SIOP Members, 

The SIOP Board of Directors have approved the establishment of a new SIOP Network – SIOP Epidemiology and Outcomes Network. Membership to this new Network is open to SIOP members only. You can join this Network as a member through SIOP CONNECT.

The role of the SIOP Epidemiology and Outcomes Network in the international pediatric oncology community is particularly valuable. Given the rarity of childhood cancers, international collaboration is crucial to sufficiently power epidemiologic and data-driven studies, demonstrate reproducibility of results, and generate hypotheses on factors underlying observed worldwide disparities in incidence, access to care and outcomes. Additionally, it is widely recognized that lack of diverse representation in genetic epidemiology studies has led to poor generalizability of results. Therefore it is imperative to promote international collaboration so that all children worldwide may benefit from the insights gained through epidemiologic and data-driven research. The Network aims to foster collaboration, facilitate and form mentorship relationships for young investigators, and establish formal opportunities for networking, career development, and professional support.


Nominations for leadership positions with the SIOP Epidemiology and Outcomes Network are welcome. You can nominate yourself or another SIOP member for either a Co-Chair or Steering Group Member of the SIOP Epidemiology and Outcomes Network here by June 15, 2024, 12pm CEST.

Please be sure to review the Terms of Reference for this Network before you apply. Please note the time commitment required for the leadership positions. The leadership positions are open to SIOP members only.
