November 2020

Event date: 4th November 2020

The prevention of cancer and development of more effective strategies to detect precursors and early-stage cancers, when treatment may be most effective, remain critical societal goals.

The 2020 Bionow Oncology Conference will present the problems that we face with prevention and early diagnosis and discuss the latest advances to address these challenges and translate the science into better care for the cancer patient. In addition to leading experts we will also hear about this challenge from the patient’s perspective.

The conference will take place on 4th and 5th November.

HGF Partner Iain Armstrong will be presenting on Thursday 5th November on Cancer Cell Therapies.

Partners Dr Andrew WellsJanet Knowles and Senior Patent Attorney Ellie Purnell will also be attending the conference.
