Defence is the Best Attack: Immuno-Oncology Breakthroughs

Barcelona, Spain : 9 - 11 October 2017

Networking Opportunities

It is important to the EACR that participants at our conferences are able to discuss, share and create new connections and collaborations. This is a vital aspect of going to any scientific conference, and we aim to create as many opportunities as possible to do this.

Space has been included in the programme to enable plenty of time for the important discussions that occur outside of the lecture theatre. We have also arranged a number of dedicated networking opportunities which are detailed below.

Networking Reception

Monday 09 October, 18:45-19:30

A complimentary buffet dinner will be served for all participants and exhibitors to enjoy on Monday evening. The trade exhibition will be open at this time, and there is the opportunity to continue networking. Poster Session 1 will follow at 19:15.

Meet the Experts

Tuesday 10 October, 17:15-18:00

Alena Gros, Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO)
Johanna Joyce, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, University of Lausanne 
Carl June, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

In this session, Dr. Gros, Dr. Joyce and Dr. June will share from their personal and professional perspectives on the path to scientific leadership. 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.

Conference Dinner

Tuesday 10 October, 19:30
