Cancer workshops and lectures

Watch our series of seminars and workshops on demand – featuring in-depth scientific discussions on key areas of research spanning basic, translational and clinical research.

Sharing knowledge is a key driver of innovation. Our expert academics have dedicated their lives to researching novel and innovative fields of cancer research from precision prevention and early detection to radiotherapy and advanced therapies.

We are committed to sharing our depth and breadth of scientific research with our wider community to improve our understanding of cancer, develop new collaborations with universities across the world, and strengthen our research portfolio.
