After carefully evaluating the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 NCRI Cancer Conference, originally scheduled for 2-4 November in Belfast, UK. To ensure you stay connected with what’s happening in the cancer research landscape during this time, our team have created a new weekly webinar series.
