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.

  • New directions in immuno-oncology – emerging biology for therapy and stratification


    Dates: 10 – 12 September 2019

    This conference will bring together a broad cross-section of the research and clinical communities working at the cutting edge of immune-oncology interventions and their stratified application. The intention is to cover both the immediate and longer-term prospects in the developmental pipeline, and the means through which we better determine effective and safe deployment of these interventions, including technology platforms, and the ‘big data’ analytical hurdles.
