Beatson Workshop


Thursday 7th and Friday 8th July 2022

Registration and Abstract Submission Deadline - Friday 27th May 2022


We are delighted to invite you to our workshop, 'An Immunological Lens For Cancer'. The workshop will run from mid-morning on Thursday 7th until late afternoon on Friday 8th July at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow.

The aim of our workshop is to promote interactions between local, national, and international scientists whose research is focussed on immuno-oncology or whose work offers novel immunological understanding relevant to the development, control or treatment of cancer.

The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute offers an ideal location for the workshop with deep expertise in cancer biology and strength both internally and with the University of Glasgow in immunology.

The two day workshop will be shaped around sessions that span numerous themes including 'Setting a Threshold for Immune Activation', 'Progress in T cell based Immunotherapies', 'Microenvironmental Control of Immunity' and 'Immunity at the Surface'. We will have two keynote speaker talks, from Dr Jessica Strid (Imperial College London) and Prof Guido Kroemer (INSERM)

A key aim of our workshop is to provide opportunities for Early Career Researchers to present their work and network with all attendees. We have encouraged invited speakers to share their talk with a relevant researcher from their lab. Flash talks will be selected from abstracts.

We will have opportunities for formal and informal networking including a BBQ on Thursday night at the Beatson Institute.

Please sign up for the Workshop using the registration form. Registration is £140.00 per person, excluding overnight accommodation.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact the workshop administrator,
