Introducing the science at this year’s NCRI conference

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.
