Royal Academy of Engineering and Cancer Research UK Collaboration Building to Detect Cancer Earlier

24 Apr 2023, 10:00 AM

Monday 24 April 2023, Prince Philip House, London 10am to 2pm



Are you a cancer biologist or clinician interested in working with engineers to develop better tools for your early detection research, or do you want to explore how you could translate your research into the clinic through the development of a new medical device/technology?
The Royal Academy of Engineering and Cancer Research UK are delighted to invite you to a collaboration building event to explore the challenges and opportunities for early detection cancer research.
This in-person event will bring cancer biologists and clinicians together with engineers with skills in areas such as molecular sensing technologies, data and AI, imaging and robotics. Participants will explore the challenges and opportunities highlighted in the Cancer Research UK Early Detection and Diagnosis of Cancer Roadmap.
The event programme will feature an overview of interdisciplinary funding opportunities from CRUK and the Academy and an invited talk from scientists currently collaborating on a multidisciplinary CRUK early detection award. The remainder of the programme will focus on workshops and structured networking sessions to enable the communities to connect with each other.
If you are interested in attending this event please complete the expression of interest form by Wednesday 5 April. Places are limited and if we reach capacity before this date the form could close earlier. We will confirm attendance no later than 12 April.
Further details about the event can be found here.
If you have any questions about this event please contact, Joanna Janus or Talisia Quallo at CRUK.
