2017 Revolutionary Science Day

Join to discover how CRISPR is changing cancer research

By researching and understanding cancer disease mechanisms, cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years.  Now, as genome editing technologies advance, there are research tools that can bring clarity to understanding and new discoveries in cancer with renewed vigour.

If you are using genome engineering to research cancer, join us in London to get an understanding of how this exciting new technology is being used and is advancing our understanding and treatment of cancer. You will hear how world leading cancer researchers and scientists developing cancer drugs are using CRISPR-Cas9 technologies in their pursuit of eradicating this disease. Find out more about our confirmed speakers.

 We have experienced more interested than anticipated and are sorry that this event is now full.
If you register today you will be added to a waiting list and contacted prior to the event if a space becomes available.
