Radboud New Frontiers in cancer research 2016


Bridging the gap between biology and daily practice

The subject of this 10th edition of the two-day symposium is cancer. Sessions will focus on the future of cancer imaging, on cancer immunology, on ‘treating the mutation, the cancer or the patient’, on prevention and patient participation and on durability of the healthcare system. Each session of the program will be of interest to both molecular life scientists and health scientists as well as to clinicians with a focus on patient care instead of research. A large panel of internationally renowned scientists that have contributed significantly to these topics will give keynote lectures. If you are interested in (the future of) cancer you should be there !
