It is also our aim to support initiatives of the principal investigators within the ETOP IBCSG Partners community. We invite you to approach us with your idea for a clinical research project by sending us an outline of the trial concept. Please note that statistical considerations, budget setup and contacts with pharmaceutical companies are responsibilities of ETOP IBCSG Partners and are not part of the initial proposal.


Your brief outline should include:

  • Study drug
  • Study design
  • Study population
  • Short rationale
  • Primary and secondary objectives
  • Most important inclusion and exclusion criteria


Please send this proposal to the chair of our scientific committee, Prof Rolf A. Stahel: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We will carefully evaluate your proposal for its feasibility through the ETOP network and strive to give you feedback and further guidance within shortest possible delays.
