This one day programme of 8 special lectures is designed for oncologists and medical practitioners who want to learn more about the research that underpins cancer treatment.
The programme will cover key topics within basic and translational research, giving an overview including the latest breakthroughs. It will enable oncologists to get a feel for what is going on in the top cancer research laboratories.
These sessions will also be useful for early-career researchers, for example those just beginning their PhD, who would benefit from a summary overview of the field of basic and translational cancer research.
CME Accreditation: An application will be made to the UEMS-EACCME for CME accreditation of this session.
