Speaker: Professor Pamela Kearns, University of Birmingham, UK
Speaker: Mr Gareth Powell, Syneos Health, UK
Speaker: Mr Richard Stephens, NCRI Consumer Forum Member, UK
This session will focus on how NCRI and NCRI Consumers (patients and carers formally involved in cancer research) can help industry and researchers at the various stages of drug development. Since the launch of the Government’s Life Science Strategy and the NIHR’s strategy for clinical research, NCRI Consumers have continued to play a pivotal role in all stages of finding and developing new cancer medicines. Delegates will learn more about NCRI Consumers’ contributions and success stories, as well as what’s to come and lessons learned. Panellists will cover opportunities and challenges, and signpost practical resources to get patient and public involvement into commercial or academic research projects. This session is a must-attend for anyone working in cancer drug discovery and development.
