CRUK Early Diagnosis Research - Virtual Session Spring 2023
Registration is now closed for the CRUK Early Diagnosis Research – Virtual Session, 'Implementing risk in the diagnosis of cancer: optimising the current and innovating the future’. Chaired by Professor Jon Emery, the event showcased some of the latest research into ‘risk’ and its potential to support earlier cancer diagnosis – a key theme in CRUK’s Early Detection and Diagnosis of Cancer Roadmap. In a series of insightful talks and Q&A sessions, our expert panel discussed opportunities to optimise how risk prediction and stratification techniques are currently researched and implemented into policy and practice, with the ultimate aim of improving patient outcomes.

Cancer Research UK Early Diagnosis Research Conferences have been hosted by the Strategic Evidence team (formerly the Early Diagnosis team) every two years since 2011. These events have provided an expert forum for professionals across the cancer community to share and debate the latest research into early diagnosis, and to identify opportunities to translate new findings into policy and best practice. Whilst circumstances over the past few years have prevented us from convening in-person conferences, we have continued to engage with the wider Early Diagnosis community on a global scale through a carefully curated, expert-led programme of virtual series and collaborative events.
Delegates have previously found the series ‘informative’ and 'interesting' to hear about ‘different perspectives of other colleagues around the table and the work they are involved in.’
