free event: Highlighting Welsh Cancer Research (South Wales) Sept 7th


  The event is free, but spaces are limited.  Reserve your space by emailing

ecancer is organising a meeting to celebrate the achievements of regional centres and groups working on cancer research and care in South Wales. This informal event is being held at the Life Sciences Hub in Cardiff on 7th September from 17.00 - 20.00 and will be chaired by Prof Malcolm Mason and hosted by Prof Gordon McVie.  After the talks there will be a networking session with refreshments.

The event is particularly special for ecancer because it is the first in series of meetings to mark our ten year anniversary of partnering with the global oncology community to provide free educational resources, events, news and open access primary research.

The meeting will be an ideal opportunity for attendees to share their work with colleagues across the region as well as a chance for them to forge new collaborations.  Our seven speakers will cover a wide range of topics, from combining drugs with radiotherapy to the specific challenges in delivering the best cancer care faced by doctors in the region. There will also be the chance to be interviewed by on the day.
