This virtual session will focus on new research in colorectal cancer, with particular emphasis on advanced and metastatic disease. Speakers will offer updates on new data recently presented at AACR and ASCO and their impact and influence on UK practice.
By the end of the meeting delegates will understand the context and implications of these findings and how these might become relevant to their practice.
There will be an opportunity for attendees to submit questions live.
