MONDAY 11 FEBRUARY will see the launch of the Cancer Research UK 5th Biennial Early Diagnosis Research Conference. It will start in the evening with a welcome reception, the opening of the poster exhibition and presentations from some of the up and coming researchers in the field of early diagnosis of cancer. A themed oral session is in planning on the topic of public awareness and behaviour change.
TUESDAY 12 FEBRUARY will be an action packed day with speakers including Professor Harry de Koning, Professor Bob Steele CBE and Professor Sir Mike Richards. Topics on Tuesday 12 February will include lung cancer, screening for different tumour types and health economics.
WEDNESDAY 13 FEBRUARY will kick off with a thought provoking presentation from Professor Willie Hamilton. Topics discussed on the day will include optimising referral pathways, cervical cancer, Multidisciplinary Diagnostic Centres and rarer cancers.
We are also planning lunchtime sessions which will showcase developments and activities from nations of the UK and Cancer Alliances.
