The UK’s biggest cancer conference

Posted on 01 November, 2013 by Eva Sharpe
This weekend I’ll be heading to Liverpool for the UK’s biggest annual cancer conference.  The National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Cancer Conference attracts hundreds of scientists, charity representatives, regulators and policy makers to discuss the latest in cancer research.

It’s going to be a busy few days at the conference for staff here at The Institute of Cancer Research, London. ICR researchers are speaking in many of the different sessions, several are receiving awards (keep an eye out for more information on our website), and Professor Naz Rahman, Head of the ICR’s Division of Genetics and Epidemiology, will be giving the final plenary lecture of the conference on realising the promise of cancer predisposition genes.

I’m looking forward to a busy conference and I’ll be blogging here about the key messages and some of the talks, so watch this space over the next week. You can also follow details of the conference via twitter using #NCRI2013.
