Event description


We are delighted to invite scientists, researchers and students to the 5th Research Symposium at the European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute, Cardiff University.

The two-day symposium (including an early career symposium on day two) will be held from 12-13 September 2017 at the Hadyn Ellis Building on the Maindy Park site of Cardiff University, a phased development of buildings for research and postgraduate teaching.

The programme will include presentations on ongoing research into prostate, breast and pancreatic cancer as well as single cell approaches to cancer. There will also be plenty of time for networking and discussions to develop new ideas and collaborations. Whilst a number of key speakers have already been confirmed, we also encourage junior scientists to submit their work for presentation.

A symposium dinner will be held on the evening of 12 September at the Cornerstone, Cardiff. Deadline for registration and the evening meal is 5 September 2017.
