International Project LEAD® was a training course modeled on NBCC’s Project LEAD® curriculum that covered the basics of cancer biology, genetics, epidemiology, research design, and advocacy, with an emphasis on global clinical trials.
International Project LEAD® was developed in 2004 in consultation with a wide range of advocacy groups and scientific organizations. Its purpose was to promote effective advocacy to improve clinical trials and advance the mission of knowing how to end breast cancer on a global scale.
The faculty members of International Project LEAD® included renowned scientists from international academic and research institutions. The course was taught in English, and participants were fluent in both the written and spoken language.
International Project LEAD® courses have been held in Paris and Buenos Aires. The first was held June 20-26, 2004 in Madrid, Spain.
