Description

Join us for our Sixth Annual Symposium Cancer and Stem Cells

Our Sixth Annual Symposium brings together world-leading researchers in cancer stem cells and cancer. We would be delighted if you joined us on September 13 and 14, as distinguished colleagues gather to discuss the latest research in this field.

The conference, held in the Miskin Manor, offers a wealth of esteemed speakers and provides the perfect opportunity to network with academics within cancer research.

Delegates will hear from a host of world-leading scientists from the field of cancer-research, with keynote speaker presentations as well as selected abstracts from early career researchers.

The conference will include a drinks reception, poster session and dinner, held in the idyllic Welsh heritage site.
