The Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence Conference 2017

Thank you for attending the 2017 edition of the Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence Conference.
We look forward to receiving your feedback, and hope to see you at a future CRUK event soon.

For any post event enquiries, please do email us.


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.

CPD Accreditation
This conference has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom for 15 category 1 (external) CPD credits and will be issued to all attending delegates post event.

Research opportunities in lung cancer

Lung Cancer

Survival for people with lung cancer remains low which is why we've made it a strategic priority. We have a broad range of funding opportunities for researchers wanting to focus on the disease.
