As public health safety measures related to COVID-19 remain and continue to restrict social gathering including public meetings and gatherings, we wanted to update you about the postponed 2020 AAADV Workshop. 

We understand that many registered participants are wondering about the specific plans and hope you understand that we have been working to resolve the large number of operational details this change in plans creates, including the commitments by the US FDA and other international regulatory officials. Given the expected activities and challenges in medicine and health care that are impacting the regulatory infrastructure, the 2020/2021 AAADV Workshop will be postponed until September 29 – October 1, 2021. Changing the annual AAADV Workshop to the last week of September will lead to few conflicts with the annual spring AACR and ASCO meetings. Therefore, future AAADV Workshops will be scheduled in this general time period.

The location of the AAADV, the North Bethesda Marriott and Conference Center will be maintained.

Although we are planning a live meeting, we understand that many international travelers may not attend due to travel restrictions, and will conduct the AAADV Workshop as a live/virtual hybrid event.

If you have already registered for the 2020/2021 AAADV Workshop, you will have secured your admission and participation in the postponed workshop. Registration will be open for those who wish to participate

The mission of the AAADV Workshop remains critical to the stakeholders in anticancer drug development. We are enthusiastic about delivering the information and exchange so critical to these activities, and appreciate your commitment and support of these activities, as we navigate the COVID-19 landscape.
