Cancer Genomics 2019

Cambridge, UK : 23 - 26 June 2019

Networking Opportunities

At the EACR, we know that conferences are about more than just hearing the latest research. Our events are well-known for providing excellent opportunities for networking, interaction and discussion.

We anticipate that the conference will have a residential feel, with most participants staying at Churchill College or nearby. Space has been included in the programme to enable plenty of time for the important discussions that occur outside of the lecture theatre. Here are a few of the features you can look forward to at Cancer Genomics 2019.
