The scientific focus of the first Young Cancer Researchers Networking event is on translational cancer research with the key goal to promote collaborative approach between laboratory and clinical research.
The key objective of the YCRN meeting is to create an opportunity for Junior Cancer Researchers to identify and develop their future partnerships.
Currently registered postgraduate research students are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentations.
Established cancer researchers and research group leaders are invited to attend and present their data in a poster form.
We appreciate the importance of interaction between people who drive innovative research at the basic science level and people who operate at clinical investigation level. We believe effective cancer research is a continuum from the “bench to bedside”. The YCRN event is organised to accommodate cross interactivity between the scientists and clinical investigators.
We have designed 6 scientific sessions, each session will have windows for 4 talks - the final talk in the session will be delivered by an established researcher within the session theme and the first 3 talks are reserved for PhD students. Session 6 - Translational Research - is designed for senior researchers and dedicated to the discussion of research applications.
