Radiation Break-through: from DNA damage responses to precision cancer therapy

Oxford, UK : 12 - 14 March 2018

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.

Welcome Reception

Monday 12 March, 17:45-18:45

A complimentary buffet dinner and drinks 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 an opportunity to meet new colleagues and reconnect with friends. Poster Session 1 will follow at 18:30.

Meet the Experts Session

Tuesday 13 March, 15:15-16:00

In this session Karlene, Madalena and Verena will share their personal and professional perspective on the path to scientific leadership and the importance of maintaining the family-work balance. This session will be a forum for open discussion.

  • Professor Karlene Cimprich, from Stanford University (US) has uncovered essential functions of ATR kinase in DNA replication. More recently her work focused on the impact of resolution of transcription/replication conflicts on genome integrity.
  • Prof. Madalena Tarsounas from University of Oxford (UK) and Member of the Scientific Programme Committee, has made important contributions to our understanding of the roles of BRCA1/BRCA2 tumour suppresors in telomere and genome integrity. Her recent work is focused on strategies for targeting BRCA1/2-deficient cells and tumours.
  • Prof. Verena Jendrossek from University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany) and Member of the Scientific Programme Committee, investigates biological approaches to improve the outcome of radiotherapy, with a particular focus on mechanisms of intrinsic and microenvironment-mediated radiation resistance and of normal tissue toxicity.

Conference Dinner
