Science Jamboree 2024

This valuable event was designed to bring science to children, to excite and inspire so they were encouraged to study science during their secondary education. Every student that experiences the delights of the Science Jamboree could be the next scientist of the future and without them, the pharmaceutical industry would not be able to continue with the work of discovering and developing medicines for patients the world over. We’re proud to host the event in it’s 29th year at Discovery Park.

Carbeque at Discovery Park

Are you a vehicle enthusiast? Bring your pride and joy along to our first Carbeque of 2024 and show it off to others!

Response and Resistance In Cancer Therapy

Despite substantial improvements in recent decades, the prognosis for those cancer patients who suffer from metastatic disease and depend on systemic drug therapy remains poor. Both intrinsic resistance and the formation of acquired drug resistance substantially affects the efficacy of cancer drugs. The advancement of precision medicine approaches holds promise for both the effective guidance of therapies to patients that will respond and the ability to monitor this tumour response. This will require the successful interpretation of ‘omics’ data and a close collaboration between pre-clinical researchers, clinicians, and computational biologists in both academia and industry to develop these strategies. This conference will bring together and showcase cancer researchers from these areas, who will present and discuss the latest advances in understanding the mechanisms of drug resistance in cancer, the identification of biomarkers of drug sensitivity/resistance and how they can be linked to precision medicine approaches.

 

Topics to include:

  • Molecular mechanisms of resistance
  • Genomics, systems biology and tumour evolution
  • Models of tumour resistance
  • Immuno-oncology and therapy

Location: University of Kent, Canterbury
