Oncology is a challenging area to deliver effective therapies, Surgery is still the best treatment, however it has limitations and many situations render surgery impractical or dangerous, and often leave patients with impaired quality of life. Therefore there is still an unmet need to deliver effective chemotherapy that can address challenging tumours, and metastases.
Although some chemotherapies have been effective, resistance is developing and rendering them ineffective. This event will bring to light some new classes of biologics and a better understanding of mechanisms of resistance in the fight to save lives against cancer.
You will hear speakers from across academia, biotech and the pharma industry offering their unique insights. The event is free to attend and will be followed by the opportunity to network over food and drinks.
