The ICB-CDT and CRUK Convergence Science Centre are hosting a joint symposium ‘Reimagining Cancer: New Perspectives in Cancer Research’ which will be taking place at the Molecular Science Research Hub on the 25th  March 2020 from 9:30am followed by a drinks and networking reception at 5pm. 


The symposium will discuss the challenges associated with Early Detection and Novel Therapeutics for cancer as well as new  interdisciplinary  perspectives to tackle them. The final session will take a step back to reimagine the applications of the cutting-edge research discussed in a clinical setting. 


We are pleased to be supported also by Novartis Oncology who will be around all day to discuss career opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry as well  as the  role of industry in bringing bench research to the clinic.
