The Early Detection of Cancer Conference
October 18 - October 20
OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, Canary Center at Stanford, and Cancer Research UK present the Early Detection of Cancer Conference series from 18 – 20 October 2022. This annual conference brings together experts in early detection from multiple disciplines to share groundbreaking research and progress in the field.
The conference is part of a long-term commitment to invest in early detection research, to understand the biology behind early-stage cancers, find new detection and screening methods, and enhance uptake and accuracy of screening.
The conference will include engaging discussions, lightning talks from submitted abstracts and opportunities to network with experts from across the globe. The ‘Great Debates’ feature will also return as speakers go head-to-head to debate provocative early detection challenges.
Confirmed session topics:
- Mechanistically-informed early detection
- What is needed for an early detection/diagnostic test to reach clinical practice?
- Microbiological risk factors for early detection
- Emerging technologies for early detection
