Cambridge, UK : 30 March - 1 April 2020
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.
The conference will have a residential feel, with many 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 DNA Damage Responses and Cancer 2020 in collaboration with ESTRO:
Monday 30 March 2020, 17:25 - 18:00
At the end of the first day's lectures, drinks and light refreshments will be served for all participants to enjoy. Take the opportunity to make new connections in an informal setting!
Monday 30 March 2020, 18:00 - 19:30
Tuesday 31 March 2020, 13:15 - 14:45
There are two dedicated 90-minute Poster Discussion Sessions in the programme. At these times, the presenters for that session should stand by their posters to discuss their work with other participants and invited speakers. As well as the dedicated sessions on Monday and Tuesday, there will also be additional poster viewing opportunities each morning - coffee will be available to purchase from 08.30, and posters can be freely browsed.
Tuesday 31 March 2020, 17:00 - 18:00
"Clinical Relevance: Translating DDR to the Bedside"
From the first observations of DNA repair in living cells in the 1960s to the recognition of advances in DNA repair by the 2015 Nobel prize, our understanding of the DNA damage response has grown exponentially with the contributions of many investigators around the world. This has set the stage for clinical translation of this knowledge to the benefit of cancer patients, and even possibly for gene editing of inherited diseases. This panel will discuss ongoing efforts to translate the basic science of the DNA damage response from bench to bedside.
This will be a forum for open discussion led by panel members Peter Glazer, Sandra Demaria and Anthony Chalmers. Participants are invited to ask their questions and contribute to the conversation.
Tuesday 31 March 2020, 19:30, Churchill College
Participants are invited to purchase tickets for the three-course Conference Dinner on Tuesday evening in the Churchill College dining hall. There is no dress code for the dinner, and the atmosphere will be relaxed. We hope that during the evening new friendships will be made and professional connections will continue to flourish.
Tickets for the conference dinner are not included in the registration fee and can be purchased as an optional extra.
Wednesday 01 April 2020, 09:15 - 09:45
An interactive session where invited speaker Steve Jackson will share from his personal and professional perspectives on working with the biotech industry. This session will take place in the lecture theatre, and will be a forum for open discussion where participants are encouraged to ask their questions.
