Genes and Cancer 2019

Cambridge, UK

8 - 11 April 2019


  • Abstract submission deadline: 11 February 2019
  • Early-bird registration deadline: 11 February 2019

Genes and Cancer is a broad-based research meeting focusing on basic and translational cancer research. The meeting is one of the UK and Europe’s best cancer research meetings and the meeting is now in its 33rd year. This year’s event is focused on four main research themes. They are:

  • Gene Regulation in Cancer
  • Ubiquitin Signalling and Inflammation
  • Tumour Metabolism
  • Model Organisms in Cancer Research

In addition to these 4 themes there will be 2 Keynote lectures and 10 short talks will be chosen from submitted abstracts (including short talks for junior principal investigators and short talks for postdocs/students). Two poster sessions also forms part of the programme which runs concurrently with a trade exhibition. A number of prizes are awarded for the best posters.

The main aim of the meeting is to bring together young scientists with some of the world’s leaders in cancer research in an informal environment that maximizes interaction between
speakers and delegates. It is hoped that the format and atmosphere at the conference will serve as an inspiration to those at the early stages of their scientific careers. In this regard, a careers workshop for young scientists involving 4 speakers also forms part of the meeting.
