Along with the ever-popular Clinical Trials Showcase, this year the Conference programme will feature the inaugural ‘What’s hot in basic science?’ sessions taking place on Monday and Tuesday of the Conference. These sessions will feature talks highlighting some of the most exciting new work across all the conference themes this year.
