Research events and conferences

As well as hosting our own events and conferences, our research funding, strategy and partnerships teams attend and exhibit at a range of conferences, meetings and workshops throughout the year.

We find this invaluable in meeting researchers and potential partner organisations to discuss opportunities to work with us. If you have any feedback about the events or information you’d like to see here in the future, or would like to arrange a meeting with our staff at these events, please do get in touch.

Inclusive research and innovation events

We've prioritised embedding Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) across all our research activities to help foster environments that support innovation and creativity. Our research events are designed to showcase cutting-edge science, bring together an international scientific community and facilitate collaborations. 

We want to provide welcoming and inclusive research events where we inspire, inform and engage a range of researchers and promote a positive research culture for everyone. To support this, we've developed a code of conduct to set out our expectations for everyone involved in our research events. 

Contact our events team

If you are organising an event of interest to our cancer research community, or you would like to invite CRUK staff to attend or speak at an event, please get in touch.

We also have a number of resources that can help CRUK Centres, Institutes and investigators with the organisation, marketing and delivery of meetings and conferences. Talk to our Events team to find out more about what we can do for you.
