Symposium on interdisciplinary research on the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer hosted by the Bristol Cancer Research Network

The Network has been hosting smaller interdisciplinary events since 2015 under the “Cancer Show & Tell” badge. Join them as they host this symposium which will see joint presenters from different disciplines, and even from different institutions, share their collaborative experiences while investigating the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer.

This will be an in-person event only.

Programme

The programme is yet to be fully finalised, but confirmed speakers include:

  • Sarah Hargreaves (Consultant Clinical Oncologist, Bristol Cancer Institute, University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust) alongside Nicola Cox (Oncology SpR, Bristol Cancer Institute, University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust), presenting on clinical work with the Head & Neck 5000 genome project
  • Laura Ballisat (PhD student, School of Physics, University of Bristol) alongside Jaap Velthuis (Professor, School of Physics, University of Bristol), presenting on how physical scientists are contributing to the treatment of cancer by reinventing radiotherapy
  • Matt Smalley (Director, European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute, School of Biosciences, Cardiff University) alongside Jacob Evans (MSc student, School of Biosciences, Cardiff University), presenting on the use of dog models to better understand breast cancer
  • Colin Campbell (Associate Professor in Mathematics for Information Technology, Department of Engineering Mathematics, University of Bristol) alongside Amy Francis (PhD student, Bristol Medical School: Population Health Sciences, University of Bristol), presenting on the use of machine learning methodologies to predict drivers of unregulated cell proliferation in the human cancer genome
  • Ryan Langdon (Research Associate, Bristol Medical School: Population Health Sciences, University of Bristol) alongside a Targeted Lung Health Check technician based with the NHS (to be confirmed), presenting on introducing biomarkers for the early detection of lung cancer
    Other speakers will be confirmed in due course.
