LONDON, UK
This year there are three main topics for discussion
  1. Screening and Prevention Research
  2. Biomarker Discovery and Assay Development
  3. Anti-Cancer Therapeutics

With plenty of opportunity  for networking and debate, this informal international  meeting will bring you up to date with current research and thinking regarding cancer screening, prevention and treatment.

Who Should Attend
The conference is open to academics, clinicians and industrial partners creating a stimulating environment in which to promote lively discussion, productive collaboration and innovation. 

 
 

Program Outline

Day 1:  Advances in Cancer Screening and Prevention Research 
This session will discuss current research and clinical trials for the prevention of cancer, focusing on screening, early detection and chemoprevention.

Day 2;  Cancer Biomarker Discovery and Assay Development
Whilst numerous challenges exist in translating biomarker research into the clinical space; a number of gene and protein based biomarkers are already being used at some point in patient care. This session will discuss the further discovery and assay development of genetic, epigenetic, proteomic, glycomic, and imaging biomarkers which can be used for cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and epidemiology.  We provide an informal atmosphere for discussion and debate.

Day 3:  Anti-Cancer Therapeutics: From research to trials to treatment 
This session will discuss development of therapies for cancer treatment including, but not exclusively biologicals, looking at discoveries in the laboratory to clinical phase trials.  This is not only an ideal place to showcase research and development but also to discover what may become new on the market and to network with experts in the field. In addition, this session will highlight ground-breaking developments in cancer therapeutics providing a unique opportunity to listen and contribute to discussions on a variety of topics  including small molecule and antibody based drugs, genetic studies, gene therapy and clinical trials

This is an ideal setting for experts to present their work and discuss their findings
