24th Biennial EACR Congress

EACR24bannerBACR400x2509th to 12th July 2016, Manchester, United Kingdom.

The theme of the 24th Biennial Congress of the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR24) is ‘From Basic Research to Precision Medicine’. Precision medicine is an emerging important concept in cancer research and treatment today, and the congress will feature world-class speakers covering all of the most innovative current research topics.

The programme has been designed to meet the needs of researchers at all stages of their careers, and to allow participants to benefit from chances to interact, discuss and reflect on the information presented. As well as high-profile plenary sessions, the programme offers parallel symposia, allowing participants to build their own scientific programme according to their interests. It will also include workshops for early-career researchers, as well as the opportunity for participants to share their work through oral and poster presentations.

Manchester – European City of Science 2016 – offers many benefits for the EACR24 Congress: it is a modern, vibrant city with a great history of science and innovation, local culture and excellent transport links with Europe and further afield. The congress is actively supported by the British Association for Cancer Research (BACR).

EACR24 will offer:

  • Innovation: pushing the agenda to make precision medicine a reality
  • Focus: participants can create a tailor-made programme from the 3 parallel sessions covering 18 priority areas
  • Breadth: the EACR Congress is Europe’s largest dedicated conference on basic and translational research
  • Sharing: poster sessions and oral presentation of best abstracts to allow researchers at all levels to share their results and discoveries
  • Networking: excellent opportunities to meet new contacts and develop new collaborations
