Invitation to all researchers and clinicians who work with Blood Cancer.


Many of the leading members of the UK blood cancer research community, as well as early career scientists, attend to hear recent successes in the field that can potentially impact patient’s lives. A range of research is represented, from basic science through to translational research and clinical trials. Sessions confirmed include Immuno-Oncology, Genomics and the Winners of the early career researcher competition.
