About the Symposium:

Blood Cancer Network Ireland’s annual symposium will take place in University College Cork on 24th May. The title of this year’s symposium is

“Blood Cancers: Advances in therapeutic strategies and enhanced patient registration to improve outcomes”

This symposium will bring together researchers, clinical and industry staff in the fields of cancer drug discovery, cancer registration and hematological malignancies giving them the opportunity to hear about the latest research and hottest topics in blood cancer research from international experts and to present their own work in this area.

The scientific focus will be in the following key areas:

  • Immunotherapy
  • Targeted therapies
  • Blood Cancer Registration
  • PROMS Measures

 

This a highly significant and relevant meeting for those interested in applying research findings to improve treatment and outcomes for blood cancer patients and we will be delighted to showcase work on any aspect of Blood Cancer research in our poster session. We look forward to a vibrant poster session with opportunities for interaction between the invited speakers, our expert scientific advisory board members, and the presenting researchers.

In particular, there will be:

  • An opportunity for researchers to submit an abstract and present prizes will be awarded for the best poster and oral presentation.
  • An opportunity for young researchers to meet experts in the field at a “meet the experts” session
  • A public session on “Advances in blood cancer research” directed towards patients and their families at the end of the symposium.
