02 February 2018: Changing face of cancer – what the general physician needs to know  

Cancer survival rates are increasing and even patients who are not cured are living significantly longer - this means general physicians and general practitioners are more likely to encounter cancer patients in their clinics. In addition, new classes of cancer therapies can have novel side effects, which may present to non-oncologists specialists in endocrinology, respiratory and GI. This one day conference will provide you with an overview of these developments and advice on how to manage patients. Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

18 - 19 April: The 5th annual Genomic Medicine 2018 Edinbugh conference 

The next, 5th annual Genomic Medicine 2018 Edinbugh conference on 18th & 19th April at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh has gone through a few changes – firstly it’s moved from Glasgow to Edinburgh due to the fact that a number of our University and Hospital partners are from Edinburgh so it seemed like a fair and natural move for this year’s meeting.  Secondly, there has been a name change – so whilst you don’t see “NGS” or Next Generation Sequencing in the title, it will still form the backbone of these meetings – however, our strong focus on the use of NGS and related genomic technologies to look at human disease meant that this name change was also a natural step. Thus we hope to cover the latest updates and innovations in NGS technologies and applications, national genome projects, use of health records, rare diseases & cancer and many more areas which you can check by clicking on the agenda. This year event was organized in partnership with:

  •          Polyomics at University of Glasgow
  •          South East Scotland Genetic Service
  •          Edinburgh Genomics
  •          MRC Human Genetics Unit (University of Edinburgh)

Speakers include Prof Tim Aitman (Edinurgh), Prof James Allan (Newcastle), Prof Darren Monckton (Glasgow), Prof Charlie Gourley (Edinburgh), Prof Caroline Hayward (Edinburgh), Dr Mandy Drake (Edinburgh) and many more.

1 - 3 May 2018: Brain Tumour Conference 2018

Our inaugural Brain Tumour Conference will unite the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss and debate some of the greatest issues in the field. Our multidisciplinary programme combines expertise from across the breadth of brain tumour research, together with insights from allied disciplines, to spark new opportunities for collaborative research.

Although survival rates for most cancers have shown an encouraging upward trend, the fearsome complexity of the brain, and the plethora of different disease subtypes, has left brain tumour survival languishing at the bottom of the table.

Our intention is to provide a stimulating environment where scientists from across the research pipeline can showcase new discoveries, spark new collaborations, and create the synergy needed to accelerate progress for patients.
