Very successful 2018 BCNI Symposium!!
BCNI held its 3rd annual symposium at Beaumont Hospital Dublin on 8th June 2018
Our annual symposium is becoming ever more popular and is on its way to becoming one of the most important meetings nationally for clinical, reseach and industry personnel with an interest in translational amd clinical research in blood cancers.
The title of this year’s symposium was "Blood Cancer Research: Focus on immunotherapy and the tumour microenvironment" " and approx 100 people attended the event. The symposium provided the opportunity to hear about the latest research and hottest topics in blood cancer research from an excellent line-up of international experts. The symposium also stimulated great interactions between Irish and international blood cancer researchers and between academics and industry researchers helping to form collaborations and come up with novel ideas for blood cancer therapeutics development.
