CRUK Lung Cancer Conference 2022

15 Nov 2022, 00:00 AM

The Lung Cancer conference with CRUK Lung Cancer Centre of Excellence is returning for an in-person event the 15-17 November 2022.

Cancer Research UK is delighted to be welcoming you to Manchester for three days of stimulating sessions designed to spark new opportunities for collaborative research. The conference will unite the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss and debate some of the greatest issues in the field. 


After decades of neglect, lung cancer research is finally coming out of the shadows. For a disease that researchers and clinicians once considered impenetrable, research is redefining our understanding of the disease, and is setting new standards of care. But we still face significant challenges. By breaking down barriers between disciplines and by combining expertise we hope to open up new avenues for collaborative research in cancer cell biology, cutting edge drug discovery and novel approaches to the detection, monitoring and treatment of lung cancer. 


This is a must-attend meeting for all scientific disciplines relevant to lung cancer, with thought-provoking sessions including: 

  • Screening, early detection and minimal residual disease 
  • Lung cancer in never smokers 
  • Metabolism and immunology in small cell lung cancer 
  • Application of imaging and radiotherapy 
  • Informatics and technology approaches to diagnosis and treatment 
  • Immune regulation and exploitation 


For the chance to be part of these, abstracts are invited on any of the conference themes by 29 July.
