Beatson International Cancer Conference

The Beatson International Cancer Conference series is designed to be a relaxed and friendly meeting where delegates and invited speakers have a chance to interact on both a scientific and social basis. We encourage the speakers to stay for the duration of the conference to ensure this interaction.

Aims of the conference

The development and progression of cancer involves complex interplay between the tumour itself and numerous other cell types and physiological processes. Thus, to study the mechanisms of malignancy in a way that is meaningful requires sophisticated in vivo models. This meeting will focus on the latest developments in the generation of animal models of cancer, and will put particular emphasis on how diverse aspects of the human disease may be faithfully recapitulated in the laboratory. We will discuss how these approaches have enabled us to assemble a whole-body view of cancer initiation and the processes that lead to the dissemination and spread of metastases.

Once again, the conference will be held at Glasgow University, as the venue proved to be so successful in 2015. There are several events arranged to give you a taste of the culture and warmth of the West of Scotland and the scientific content of the conference is guaranteed to stimulate.
