These seminars are an opportunity to bring together the research community across UCL (QS IoN, GOSH-ICH, and the Cancer Institute), NHS Trusts (UCLH, GOSH), and the Francis Crick Institute to foster engagement and encourage networking across research groups working in areas related to brain cancer, across diverse disciplines, including engineering, machine learning, and basic biology through to clinical studies.

The seminars will provide a platform for knowledge exchange and transfer to help facilitate cross collaborative projects across the breadth of the translational pipeline, to lead and support cutting-edge research in brain tumour biology, novel diagnostic methods, and new therapies.

Zoom details will be shared with all registered attendees
