Rethinking Cancer UCL Cancer Domain Symposium
Monday 13 May 2019
UCL Institute of Education
Registration for the inaugural UCL Cancer Domain Symposium is open
Cancer remains one of the major causes of morbidity and premature death worldwide; one in two people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. UCL has a proud track record in addressing the societal, technical, and health challenges of cancer and in exploring its underling biology.
This symposium, organised by the UCL Cancer Domain, invites our broad community to assemble for the first time at scale to consider challenges and opportunities in cancer research, prevention and treatment, from biological, clinical, technical, economic and societal perspectives. The event showcases our distinctive multidisciplinary expertise and features interactive discussion sessions with our speakers and panels. Talks are scheduled on the following themes:
- Cancer evolution: can we beat Nature?
- Cancer detection: the earlier the better?
- The cancer treatment revolution and how we afford it
We are delighted to announce that Professor Charles Swanton (UCL Cancer Institute and Francis Crick Institute) and Professor Mariana Mazzucato (UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose) will deliver the keynote lectures at this event.
