November 25, 2021 @ 9:20 am - 5:15 pm

NCRI National Cancer Research Institute - Beyond the Horizon - Bridging the translational gap in cancer research, 25 November 2021, Virtual

This one-day virtual event (the second in our Beyond the Horizon series) aims to identify and address current and future challenges in translational cancer research specifically in the context of pre-clinical development to early phase clinical evaluation. Following an initial overview of the status quo and a definition of translation across the research spectrum, delegates will hear from eminent speakers in a series of panel discussions where specific topics will be addressed. These topics have been identified through a series of interviews with cancer researchers and distilled by a Scientific Committee.
