2020 International Chordoma Research Workshop

Thursday, July 16 – Friday, July 17 • Virtual

In light of the current situation with COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of all participants, we have decided to postpone our 2020 International Chordoma Research Workshop (ICRW). In its place, we will hold an abbreviated virtual meeting covering select clinical and research topics on the original dates, July 16-17, 2020. Additional details about the virtual meeting will be announced in late April.

Join us for a virtual opportunity to exchange data and ideas with fellow chordoma researchers and clinicians from around the world, and to help shape future directions for chordoma research leading to the development of new treatments.

In that time, we have grown from a handful of scientists in relatively few labs to a thriving global community of more than 350 researchers at top institutions worldwide.

Designed to catalyze meaningful research advances and spark collaboration, the workshop is:


Each session is designed to facilitate discussion and debate among participants and to elicit new ideas that can move the field forward.


With topics ranging from basic biology to clinical research to process improvements, the workshop attracts a diverse mix of participants who bring a wide range of complementary expertise and perspectives.
