CRUK–AACR Joint Conference on Engineering and Physical Sciences in Oncology 2019

CRUK-AACR Joint Conference on Physical Sciences in Oncology 2019

Keen to explore how emerging technologies and novel approaches can unlock new thinking in your field? Open to building interdisciplinary collaborations that offer up fresh perspectives on the biggest challenges in cancer research?

Join us at the Cancer Research UK–AACR Joint Conference on Engineering and Physical Sciences in Oncology in London this autumn where we’ll spark alliances between cancer researchers and leading scientists from engineering and physical sciences backgrounds.

Our multidisciplinary programme will explore new ways to transform our understanding of biology and to better detect and treat cancer, enabling expert speakers to address some of the toughest challenges in cancer research from a variety of perspectives. You’ll have ample opportunity to interact with leaders in their field, while sessions will equip you with valuable insights into building effective alliances across disciplines.
