Monthly Plenary Series

Your Research Could be the Next Headline

The ASCO Plenary Series is a monthly online forum for presentation and discussion of the latest cancer research that keeps clinicians current on new and emerging research in between meetings. The Plenary Series provides faster dissemination of practice-changing science to better help clinicians deliver the most up-to-date care and treatments to patients with cancer.

Each monthly program features up to two practice-changing and clinically relevant abstracts on the latest advances in cancer care. The abstract presentations are accompanied by a discussant presentation and followed by a live question-and-answer session.
