    For those of you attending this year's NCRI conference in Liverpool, I will be running workshops on Monday and Tuesday morning to de-mystify the scientific content of each day's programme.

    My workshops are for people who plan to attend the day's lectures whilst fearing that they won’t understand the relevant scientific concepts.

    My workshops will explain words, concepts and ideas, such as:

      • Biomarkers and how they relate to personalized medicine
      • Epigenetics
      • Cancer metabolism
      • The ideas behind cancer immunotherapy
      • Genetic instability and intra-tumoural heterogeneity
      • What we mean by ‘genomics trials’

    Similar to previous years’ workshops, I will use diagrams and illustrations to provide clear, easy-to-understand explanations of complicated biological concepts.

    The workshops are geared towards non-scientists, such as doctors, nurses, trials staff and patients who’d like to get the most out of this year’s conference.

    Description: Using a combination of colourful diagrams and clear explanations, I will describe the gene mutations and other defects that drive ovarian cancer (including fallopian tube and other primary peritoneal cancers). I will also examine how this knowledge impacts treatment choice and explain the science behind chemotherapy and PARP, B-Raf and angiogenesis inhibitors. The day will also include the potential of immunotherapy and novel approaches for treatment, screening and patient monitoring.
    Level: Intermediate
    Audience: Ideal for anyone with an A level or equivalent understanding of cell biology and genetics and who works with cancer patients, data or treatments.
    Cost: TBC
