Event description


This meeting will bring together the vibrant and diverse Cambridge research work in prostate cancer. We will have talks from a wide field of researchers working in very different specialities (e.g. clinical trials, radiology, engineering, imaging, bioinformatics) but all focused on driving improvements in outcomes for men suffering from the most common male cancer in the western world. It will be a unique opportunity for networking and exploring synergies in ideas and themes to advance our research in (i) early detection of lethal disease (ii) better understanding of the biology of primary cancers and (iii) delivering individualised treatment & novel precision medicine approaches.

The draft programme is listed below:
