26 April, 2018 - Artificial intelligence in cancer research

Time: 14:00:00 - 18:00:00

Through this AI meeting, the UCL Cancer Domain is bringing the community together to identify innovative uses of AI and advanced analytic methodologies, and consider societal, medical and ethical implications, as well as discuss opportunities and challenges around data access. Potential data sources range from fundamental cell biology data, pre-clinical and patient ‘omics data, cancer diagnostic and digital pathology image data, through to medical records and population risk data. Early career researcher lightning talks - For this event we are inviting applications from UCL early career researchers to deliver a 'lightning talk' (a short presentation lasting only a few minutes) at the event. Interested UCL ECRs should apply for a spot by 5pm on Monday 9 April by sending the following details to jessica.grant@ucl.ac.uk: name (including title, e.g. Dr), position / job title, affiliation (Department, Institute, Faculty), project title, and 2-3 bullet points about the project.

1 May, 2018 - Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Conference 2018

Time: -

Cancer Research UK inaugural Brain Tumour Conference will unite the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss and debate some of the greatest issues in the field. Our multidisciplinary programme combines expertise from across the breadth of brain tumour research, together with insights from allied disciplines, to spark new opportunities for collaborative research. Although survival rates for most cancers have shown an encouraging upward trend, the fearsome complexity of the brain, and the plethora of different disease subtypes, has left brain tumour survival languishing at the bottom of the table. Our intention is to provide a stimulating environment where scientists from across the research pipeline can showcase new discoveries, spark new collaborations, and create the synergy needed to accelerate progress for patients.
