Event description

Description

The Centre’s Annual Symposium is a celebration of the wealth of excellence we have here in Oxford and the passion and commitment to cancer research that is shared across our community. The programme showcases the breadth of activity across the Centre and features cross-departmental or interdisciplinary partnerships supporting translational cancer research in Oxford.

The Symposium provides an opportunity for our members to network and often sparks new opportunities for partnership. It is also provides a platform to highlight our younger scientists through poster competitions and presentations from Centre-funded students. We look forward to welcoming you to our event! The event is exclusive for Centre members only.

The Symposium will feature poster sessions showcasing the breadth and depth of the work taking place in Oxford, alongside sessions focusing on immunotherapy and neuro-oncology. The event will close with a networking reception with canapes and drinks that all attendees are welcome to.
