Children and young people's cancer research conference

We're delighted to introduce our first in-person children's and young people’s cancer research conference as part of the 2023 research event series. 

It will bring together experts from multiple disciplines to network, showcase exciting discoveries and explore the unique challenges related to children’s and young people’s cancers. The conference will also provide a forum to build connections and discuss what children's and young people's research is happening across the UK. This is an opportunity to tackle some of the biggest challenges in the field, recognise the work of our community and foster collaborations that will accelerate research. 


This is a must-attend event for all scientific disciplines relevant to children’s and young people's cancer research at all career stages. 

You'll have plenty of opportunities to network with your peers, view posters and continue the collaborative discussion alongside the sessions.
