Important information regarding your registration at the Lung Cancer 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 Lung Cancer Conference scheduled for 10-11 November 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.

We are pleased to announce that Cancer Research UK will hold its 3rd international Lung Cancer Conference together with Caroline Dive University of Manchester at Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, and CRUK Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence, and Charles Swanton at the Francis Crick Institute, University College London and CRUK Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence.


This conference will bring together world experts across a range of disciplines to discuss the latest advances in lung cancer research and how we can continue to drive forward progress. After decades of neglect, lung cancer research is finally coming out of the shadows. For a disease that researchers and clinicians once considered impenetrable, research is redefining our understanding of the disease, and is setting new standards of care. But we still face significant challenges. By breaking down barriers between disciplines and by combining expertise we hope to open up new avenues for collaborative research in cancer cell biology, cutting edge drug discovery and novel approaches to the detection, monitoring and treatment of lung cancer.
