Cancer Research Nottingham
CRN Symposium



The CRN Annual Symposium (January 15th 2014) showcased some of the diverse activities in cancer research taking place across the University and our partner institutions. More than 130 people registered for the event, and overall attendance during the day probably reached close to 200. 

The program included 18 talks covering a wide range of themes such as basic and clinical cancer research, cancer drug discovery, and translational research activities, and thus provided an excellent overview of some of the expertise and resources available within CRN. The networking over lunch and coffee breaks will undoubtedly inspire some new collaborative interactions.
