Event description

Description

CU OncSoc is delighted to invite you to our Annual Conference 2019.

Everyone is welcome, including students from outside Cambridge and non-medical students with an interest in learning more about cancer, oncological research, clinical and non-biomedical aspects of managing cancer patients.

We ask for a small contribution of £5.00 (much cheaper than most clinical student conferences in Cambridge!), so we can finance a personalised OncSoc lanyard for you. We would also like some commitment to the ticket so that the food we provide and the printed lanyard + nametag do not go to waste. Refund requests will be accepted only before 09 Feb 2019, 5 PM.
