Cancer Research UK is hosting its next early diagnosis research conference on 23rd and 24th February 2017 in central London. The 2017 conference follows 2015’s NAEDI Research Conference, which covered a broad range of early diagnosis themes including primary care, clinical decision support tools, emergency presentations and screening.

The conference attracts people from across the early diagnosis community, including researchers, clinicians, policy makers and people affected by cancer. 96% of people attending last year’s conference rated it as excellent or good.

Registration for the conference is now open: please see below for details on how to register
