Deadline Extended for Beatson Virtual Cancer Conference 2021

Registration Deadline Extended
Now Friday 28th May 2021

The organisers of the Beatson International Cancer Conference in June have now extended the registration date. This is a virtual event and is free of charge to register.  Please register and submit abstracts via the website.

The Beatson International Cancer Conference series is a relaxed and friendly meeting where delegates and invited speakers are encouraged to interact. To allow for this interaction we will hold ‘meet the speaker’ sessions in breakout rooms on Tuesday afternoon.

Early career researchers are encouraged to submit their abstracts for consideration for a short talk or a flash talk, as soon as possible.

Aims of the Conference

Much of our understanding about the molecular mechanisms of cancer initiation, progression and spread stems from methods that involve the dissociation of tissue and, unfortunately, the loss of spatial information either within the tumour or in relation to the tumour microenvironment. Recent technological advances are now making it possible to preserve spatial coordinates and still extract functional molecular information. We can now interrogate cancer genetics, metabolism, microenvironment and immunology in space and time with unprecedented breadth and depth.  This is underpinned by emerging technologies to address fundamental questions about the cellular and metabolic rewiring that occurs during tumour development, to get a deeper understanding of how these networks are modified by cancer treatment and ultimately help us perform ‘the cartography of cancer’.

Registration and abstract submission deadline Friday 28th May 2021.
