Forthcoming Events


Breakfast meeting: Metabolic imaging and radiomics – new ways of probing tumour biology

Date: Thursday 12th September 2019
Time: 08:30 - 09:30
Venue: Clinical School Restaurant

These meetings are an opportunity for researchers across Cambridge and further afield who are engaged with our programme to network with fellow researchers in an informal setting.

The September meeting is a collaboration with the CRUK Cambridge Centre Urological Malignancies Programme. Dr Stephan Ursprung will open this meeting on "Metabolic imaging and radiomics – new ways of probing tumour biology".

The Early Detection of Cancer Conference

Date: Tuesday 24 - Thursday 26th September 2019
Venue: Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center, Stanford, California

Canary Center at Stanford, Cancer Research UK and the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, present the Early Detection of Cancer Conference series. The annual Conference brings together experts in early detection from multiple disciplines to share ground breaking research and progress in the field.

The Conference is part of a long-term commitment to invest in early detection research, to understand the biology behind early stage cancers, find new detection and screening methods and enhance uptake and accuracy of screening.


CRUK - AACR Joint Conference on Engineering and Physical Sciences in Oncology 2019

Date: Tuesday 15 - Thursday 17th October 2019
Venue: Radisson Blu Portman, Marylebone, London

The Cancer Research UK–AACR Joint Conference on Engineering and Physical Sciences in Oncology is taking place in London this autumn where alliances between cancer researchers and leading scientists from engineering and physical sciences backgrounds will be sparked.

The multidisciplinary programme will explore new ways to transform our understanding of biology and to better detect and treat cancer, enabling expert speakers to address some of the toughest challenges in cancer research from a variety of perspectives. You’ll have ample opportunity to interact with leaders in their field, while sessions will equip you with valuable insights into building effective alliances across disciplines.

Our programme leader, Dr Sarah Bohndiek, will be speaking in the ‘state-of-the-art cancer detection technology’ session. To see the full conference programme or to register, please click here.
