Event description
Celebrating 10 years of the Chain-Florey Clinical Research scheme through a clinical research symposium on 21 March 2019.

About this event

The Chain-Florey Clinical Research Scheme was established in 2009 to facilitate the translation of basic science for clinical benefit. The scheme provides clinicians with the opportunity to do basic science research in the outstanding laboratories of the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) based at Hammersmith Hospital in West London.

This year we will be joined by some of our first Chain-Florey Research Fellows, who will share their clinical research journeys and we will hear about the latest research from our current Chain-Florey Lecturers and Fellows. The keynote address will delivered by Professor Charlie Swanton, Francis Crick Institute, who will be presenting his work on cancer evolution and treatment resistance and the event will conclude with a panel discussion on the ‘What will the remit of a clinician scientist be in 2029?’ covering topics such as personalised medicine, genomics, healthy ageing, AI, technological advances and ethics.

Organiser MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences

Organiser of Chain Florey Clinical Research Scheme Symposium

The MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) is a vibrant research environment in which scientists and clinicians collaborate to advance the understanding of biology and its application to medicine. Our research is focused on some of the UK’s major health challenges that arise from changes in diet (obesity, diabetes and heart disease) and increased lifespan (dementia and cancer). Through tackling fundamental questions about the interplay between our genes, environmental stresses such as diet, and the way our bodies age our researchers aim to translate this knowledge to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of diverse medical conditions.
