Invited speakers, free communications and panel debates
With an exciting combination of invited speakers, free communications and panel debates – our aim is for Childhood Cancer 2016 to support a two-way dialogue – or indeed a multi-way dialogue. With a broad mixture of scientists and clinicians joining us from the UK and overseas (and we are pleased to welcome speakers and delegates from the US, France, Germany, Italy, Greece, Brazil and Pakistan
), the conference will facilitate the sharing of information and knowledge and provide a forum for networking and discussion. Importantly, we see the conference as a key opportunity to engage with the childhood cancer research community and garner their views on how we work and what we should be funding. We will be actively seeking input into the development of our new research strategy. We are delighted that many of our grant-holders are joining us to showcase some of the work that we are funding.
Follow up information
For those who are unable to join us next week, we will be videoing the sessions and much of the content will be available on our Conference website
in the next few weeks. We are also pleased to be joined by ecancer, who will be producing a conference report as well as filming interviews with some of our speakers. Conference abstracts will also be available on the Conference website
shortly. Katie Martin, Research Development Manager, Children with Cancer UK, 1 September 2016
