Discovery Programme event: improving cancer diagnosis

23 April 2015

Registration is now open for the Discovery Programme conference - a free, one-day event where delegates can find out about the latest research on improving the diagnosis of cancer.

To celebrate the end of the NIHR-funded Discovery Programme, the research team is organising a conference on the 2nd June at the Royal College of General Practitioners in London.

The Discovery Programme is a collaboration between the Universities of Bristol, Exeter, Cambridge, Durham, Bangor and Oxford. At the conference delegates will be able to hear about all the studies the research team has undertaken over this five-year research programme which are all focused on cancer diagnosis and ways to improve it. The project team will outline how its research has impacted on UK healthcare policy and clinical practice and discuss the next steps in cancer diagnostic research.

The conference will bring together key opinion leaders in cancer diagnostics and will place the research findings in the context of UK healthcare and explore the research challenges for the future.
