Cancer Research Nottingham


The 2016 Cancer Research Nottingham (CRN) Symposium program featured industrial, medical and scientific sessions of interest to all members of the Cancer Research Priority Area at University of Nottingham. Once again, this year CRN symposium program proved to be so successful and undoubtedly, provided a friendly meeting where our delegates and invited speakers have a chance to interact on both a scientific and social basis.

  • Prof Richard Bayliss, University of Leeds, UK
  • Prof Val Brunton, the Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre, UK 
  • Dr Catherine Cowell, Cancer Research UK (CR-UK) Funding Manager.

The sessions were also designed to introduce some of the latest cancer research activities including Cancer Biology & Genetics, Cancer immunology, Radiation oncology, Drug discovery, delivery and development, Molecular pathology and Haemato-oncology in Nottingham by Poulam Patel, Beth Coyle, Andreas Theotokis, Victoria James, Alan McIntyre, Uwe Vinkemeier, Ian Spendlove, Abdol Nateri and David Bates.
