Young Cancer Researchers Networking (YCRN) 2018 

The Young Cancer Researchers Networking (YCRN) 2018 is a conference organised by a Cancer Research at CoMH, UCC. It is scheduled for 21-22 June 2018. Its main purpose is to assemble and support interdisciplinary translational cancer research community in Ireland and promote the profile of Irish cancer research in Europe. A need to stage an event where cutting-edge translational cancer research expertise can be readily disseminated with a focus on the next generation of researchers was identified and this conference will address this need by encouraging and showcasing talent from junior researchers in the cancer space in Ireland and abroad.

The principal theme of the first YCRN event is dedicated to the current advances in translational oncology. It will be delivered in a form of oral and poster presentations of pioneering results in cancer research that is aligned with three Strategic Priority Areas of Opportunity: G – Therapeutics, E – Medical Devices and F – Diagnostics, as identified by the Report of the Research Prioritisation Steering Group.
