3 September, 2018 - CRUK-UCL Early Detection Funding Opportunities Event
Time: 17:30:00 - 20:00:00
Hosted by CRUK and the UCL Cancer Domain. Detecting cancer early enough for curative intervention, whilst avoiding over-treatment, is one of the most important challenges in cancer medicine. Consequently, early detection is a strategic priority for Cancer Research UK, which aims to drive forward a transformation in how and when cancer is detected. To accelerate progress, CRUK has invested in a number of early detection funding schemes. The meeting brings UCL clinical and non-clinical researchers together to consider the early detection ‘vision’ and challenges, explore the CRUK funding opportunities in more detail, and hear about future events. The talks will be followed by informal networking between researchers of different disciplines, and CRUK staff, which we hope will stimulate discussion and research ideas.

3 September, 2018 - Systems Biology: Making Sense of Complexity Symposium 3 & 4 September 2018
Time: 09:00:00 - 17:30:00
Weizmann UK are hosting a two-day Systems Biology Symposium at University College London. The aim is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of leading world scientists from the Weizmann Institute with those from the UK to look at some of the common motifs of how complex biological system are organised. The symposium will focus on emerging systems design principles in the exploration of cancer, neurosciences, host-pathogen interactions and cell biology. Attendance will be limited to 180 delegates. Registration is £100 or £50 for students. This includes lunch and refreshments. This meeting will be an exciting and slightly out-of-the ordinary occasion so do make sure to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

10 September, 2018 - Cancer in the population – a UCLPartners Symposium
Time: 13:00:00 - 18:00:00
This exciting, inter-disciplinary symposium will showcase some of the wide range of population-based cancer research being undertaken in partner institutions of the UCLPartners Academic Health Science Centre (AHSC) Cancer Programme. It will bring together researchers from UCL, LSHTM, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and beyond, to share experience with eminent researchers and encourage new collaborations. It will close with a discussion to help shape recommendations for the future of AHSC’s cancer research programme, followed by a reception. The event promises to be a fascinating afternoon, with insightful talks and time to network with peers, colleagues and other scientists working in - or just curious about - population-based cancer research. Please note this event is free but registration is essential to secure your place.

1 October, 2018 - Crick Cancer Research Symposium
This two-day meeting will to bring together over 200 researchers and clinicians working on cancer. In particular, we will provide a forum for recently established PIs and early career researchers to present their latest work and expand their network of colleagues and collaborators. There will be 12 short talks selected from the abstracts, flash talks, and poster presentations. Drinks and a light buffet will accompany the poster session on Monday evening.

12 February, 2019 - Cancer Research UK 5th biennial early diagnosis research conference
The 2019 conference theme will be ‘10 years on: accelerating early diagnosis evidence into practice’ by bringing together researchers, clinicians, patients and policy makers to share and discuss the latest research findings, their implications on policy and practice, and the future needs and direction for early diagnosis. The call for abstracts and registration is now open, and we are excited to welcome you all to what we hope will be a thought-provoking and celebratory conference. Abstracts are invited from a variety of topics in translation and evidence across the diagnostic pathway. Deadline for abstract submissions: 5pm Monday 1 October.
