Previous early diagnosis research conferences
We have created a central resources hub for Health Professionals which hosts all of our CRUK resources and further materials to help with managing the pandemic. We are updating the information as guidance changes. There is also a page specifically for patients on our about cancer hub.

Cancer Research UK has hosted conferences on early diagnosis research for the past 10 years. They have covered a broad range of early diagnosis themes and have attracted people from across the early diagnosis community.
The fifth Early Diagnosis research conference took place on the 11th – 13th February 2019 and was held in Birmingham for the first time.
The theme for the 2019 early diagnosis research conference was: “10 years on: Accelerating early diagnosis into practice”.
The 2019 conference also hosted an awards ceremony for the first time. 4 awards were nominated and voted for by the conference delegates.
