The aim of the symposium is to provide Irish researchers and clinical staff with 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 symposium will facilitate the generation of novel concepts and ideas for blood cancer therapeutics development. The scientific focus of the symposium will be on:


  •          Drug discovery and targeted therapies
  •          Immunotherapy
  •          Tumour microenvironment

This will be a highly significant and relevant meeting for all researchers interested in applying research findings for clinical development in blood cancers. It will facilitate the development of partnerships across academia and industry to identify and tackle the issues and challenges related to developing new therapies for blood cancers. It will give young researchers the opportunity to meet experts in their field thereby supporting the development of their scientific knowledge, professional networks and career opportunities.

Target audienceWe welcome national and international researchers, clinicians, nurses, scientists and industry personnel with an interest in blood cancers.
