Event Details

Summary:

An innovative one-day event focusing on the developments in the production and use of genomic and molecular data for cancer

Event Description

The event will explore the developments in the production and use of genomic and molecular data for cancer. Leading experts and those working in the field will share insights on data collection processes, how data is now being used in analysis and research and the impact it can have on services and patient outcomes. You will hear from a range of speakers from across the cancer data community including charity, research, clinical and patient representatives. Throughout the day you will have an opportunity to ask questions and understand more about how cancer data is supporting improvements in how we identify and treat cancer.

This event has a limited number of delegate places and as such registration is restricted to two delegates per organisation.

If you have any questions about the event or registering to attend, please contact NDRengagement@phe.gov.uk
