Meetings and Seminars

This page lists scientific events, in Italy or abroad, potentially interesting for cancer researchers.

AIRC organizes some webinars directly: the AIRC Lectures, highlighted below by the AIRC logo. AIRC may also support external scientific meetings, as described in the policy.

Cancer Research UK
Brain tumour conference

The conference brings together multidisciplinary researchers and scientists to share the latest cutting-edge science and discuss the big challenges in brain tumour research. Attendees can expect a programme packed with stimulating sessions, expert panel discussions and lively debate on hot topics including neuro-immunology, the tumour microenvironment, stem cells and the developmental origins of brain tumours. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet with all corners of the international brain cancer community and spark new ideas for collaborative research.

Early Detection of Cancer Conference

After two years of virtual meetings, the Early Detection of Cancer Conference is back in person in Portland, Oregon, from 18 – 20 October. Join the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss, debate and share the latest thinking and results in early detection research. Hear from a host of experts from across the globe including Jos Jonkers (Netherlands Cancer Institute), Karen Knudsen (American Cancer Society) and John Carpten (University of Southern California). Expect a jam-packed agenda with lightning talks from submitted abstracts, networking sessions, posters and expert panel discussions. Confirmed sessions include:
• Mechanistically-informed early detection from models to humans
• Emerging technologies for early detection
• Microbiological risk factors for early detection
• What is needed for an early detection/diagnostic test to reach clinical practice
Cancer Research UK are providing free registration and travel bursaries to five UK-based students or post-docs who submit abstracts to present at this year’s conference. Submit an abstract by 19 August to be considered for a lightning talk, with general abstract submission closing on 2 September.
