BCNI Symposium 2020 - postponed
BCNI Symposium postponed
Apr 01 2020 Posted: 18:47 IST
Each year BCNI organises a research symposium. This year it was due to take place on the 22nd of May in Galway, but has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We plan to reschedule it towards the end of the year (if safe to do so) with the same speakers and programme as previously advertised on the theme of “Novel molecular and metabolic mechanisms and advances in cellular therapies”.
Speakers include Marco Ruella from University of Pennsylvania as the keynote speaker on resistance to CAR-T cells in lymphoma, as well as Owen Smith (NCRC, Crumlin), Jessica Okosun (Barts Cancer Institute, QMU London), Sean Lim (Southampton University), Tríona Ní Chonghaile (RCSI) and Paul Murray (UL).
Look out for a new date which will be announced in due course.
