Event description

Description

How close are we to a cure for cancer?

Everyone knows someone who has had cancer. Its a disease that has plagued our society and for many its part of their daily lives.

However, in this age of genomics and advanced imaging technology, cancer research is undergoing a revolution with rapid advances in diagnosis, treatment and personalised therapy.

Our panel of expert speakers will reveal how these new approaches to cancer research will lead to breakthrough discoveries. From the ‘how and why’ of getting cancer, through to new drug development and delivery, we’ll look at how cutting-edge technologies are changing our approach to this age-old disease and answer the questions:

“Where will the cancer research revolution take us next?”

“How close are we to finding the cure for cancer?”

Each panellist will deliver a 10 minute presentation on their area of expertise, followed by the panel discussion and audience Q&A. The event is designed for anyone with an interest in the topic and is open to all.
