Cancer Research UK, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and the Canary Center at Stanford, have been closely monitoring developments relating to the ..
coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and reviewing guidance from government bodies. After careful consideration, we have made the decision to convert the Early Detection of Cancer Conference 2020 to a virtual conference, instead of the scheduled in-person conference on October 6-8 in London, UK. With the number of attendees, including those travelling internationally, and given that many of you work with vulnerable communities, we agreed that safeguarding your health and safety, and the health and safety of those you work with, is our priority. With global restrictions on international travel continuing to grow, it would not be possible to hold the event in its current format without impacting on the quality of the sessions. We understand this is disappointing news, and in light of the work invested in building the 2020 in-person program, our plan is to host the virtual conference over the same scheduled dates of October 6-8 2020. Cancer Research UK, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and the Canary Center at Stanford, present the Early Detection of Cancer Conference series. The Conference is part of a long-term commitment to invest in early detection research, to understand the biology behind early stage cancers, find new detection and screening methods, and enhance uptake and accuracy of screening.
