The ICR will be celebrating the outstanding scientific achievements and the recent, well deserved, Knighthood of Professor Sir Mel Greaves FRS with a symposium entitled

‘Leukaemia legacy : a celebration of the impact of blood cancer research and treatment’.

We are gathering his friends, colleagues and peers to showcase the achievements that have been made in Leukaemia research with each lecture to be given in recognition of the name of one of the key historical scientists in that particular area. It is Professor Greaves wish that we should use this occasion to celebrate the extraordinary success and impact of leukaemia research and treatment over the past several decades .This would acknowledge the many scientists and clinicians involved, the international effort, the team work, the sustained and essential support of funding bodies, and the patients and families involved.

This symposium will be, an exemplar of how translational biomedical science works best and will highlight just how many major advances in cancer biology and treatment derive from studies in leukaemia.

This symposium is open to all who have an interest in Leukaemia Research.
