Please save the date for the next Cancer Research UK Convergence Science Centre Symposium, which will take place in-person at the Royal Geographical Society, SW7 2AR.
We invite you to join our annual symposium where engineering and cancer research converge, creating a unique platform for researcher to engage with the future of biomedical research.
Our upcoming symposium will be a celebration of technology's transformative power, echoing the remarkable career of our keynote speaker, Professor Mehmet Toner, a renowned Bioengineer from Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. Professor Toner's remarkable contributions to biomedical sciences span bio-sensing, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering. He played a pivotal role in developing cutting-edge microdevices for point-of-care diagnostics, addressing conditions such as cancer, AIDS, genetic defects, and infectious diseases.
