Cancer and Stem Cells Symposium

25 January 2018

Cancer and Stem Cell Symposium

The European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute has announced its sixth annual symposium, bringing together world-leading researchers in cancer stem cells and cancer.

The two-day conference, held in Miskin Manor in Pontyclun, offers a wealth of both internationally renowned speakers and rising stars in the field and provides the perfect opportunity to network with academics within cancer research.

Professor Matt Smalley, Director of the European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute at Cardiff University, said: “We are excited to announce our sixth annual Symposium, which will take place later this year.

“Each year our conference brings researchers from around the world to Wales, to share their work in the field of cancer and cancer stem cells.

“This year our Symposium is based in the iconic Welsh estate of Miskin Manor, not only giving researchers a valuable opportunity to create networks within the field, but also a chance to experience some of the best of Welsh culture.”

The Cancer and Stem Cell Symposium will take place on September 13 and 14, and features talks from world-leading scientists and early career researchers.

Delegates will have the opportunity to stay for an evening dinner of freshly prepared welsh specialities after the first day of the conference.

Matt said: “The Symposium is unique to Wales, and showcases Wales as a centre of excellence for cancer stem cell research.

“We are honoured to welcome cancer researchers to attend our Symposium, and we look forward to meeting everyone in September.”
