Monthly Plenary Series
Designed to keep clinicians current on new and emerging research in between meetings, the ASCO Plenary Series provides a monthly online forum for presentation and discussion of the latest cancer research. The Plenary Series will provide faster dissemination of practice-changing science to better help clinicians deliver the most up-to-date care and treatments to patients with cancer.
Up to two practice-changing and clinically relevant abstracts on the latest advances in cancer care will be highlighted monthly in a live, one-hour virtual session. Each abstract presentation will be accompanied by a discussant presentation and followed by a live question-and-answer session.

“The ASCO Plenary Series allows us, as the world’s premier venue for clinical cancer research, to keep up with the explosive pace of important and clinically relevant new developments. Bringing the best research to our patients in a timely fashion will save lives, an exciting prospect for our members.”
