Taking place on 8-12 November 2021, the NCRI Festival will feature a number of topical sessions, panel discussions, debates and co-creation sessions on strategic topics, as well as proffered paper presentations highlighting the latest cancer research in the following areas:

  • Discovery/underpinning research
  • Prevention and early detection
  • Treatment
  • Living with and beyond cancer
  • Clinical trials

The NCRI Festival has been designed for you to inspire and be inspired by others in the cancer research community, but we appreciate that everyone has busy schedules, which is why we’re running the event throughout the week – so you can join sessions at your leisure, and watch recordings on-demand. We’ll also be including a number of exciting networking sessions (in keeping with our festival theme) because learning is much more enjoyable when you’re having fun!
