Important information regarding your registration at the Brain Tumour Conference 2020

Cancer Research UK have been closely monitoring developments relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and reviewing guidance from government bodies.  After careful consideration we have taken the decision not to go ahead as planned, with the Brain Tumour Conference scheduled for 12-14 May 2020.

With the number of attendees, including those travelling internationally, and given that many of you work with vulnerable communities, we agreed that safeguarding your health and safety, and the health and safety of those you work with, is our priority. With global restrictions on international travel continuing to grow, it would not be possible to hold the event in its current format without impacting on the quality of the sessions.

Research opportunities in brain tumours

[Brain icon]

Brain tumour survival remains low, and has changed little in over a generation. That's why we've made brain tumours a strategic priority as one of our four "cancers of unmet need".

We're boosting our investment into brain tumours, and we have a number of opportunities to help you develop your brain tumour research or to apply your skills to these cancers for the first time.
