Brain Tumour Conference 2022

16 May 2022–18 May 2022, 10:00 am–5:00 pm

CRUK Brain Tumour Conference 2022

The conference will bring together specialists in brain tumour research and allied disciplines for a packed agenda of lightning talks, networking sessions and expert panel discussions.

Event Information

Open to






Three days of stimulating sessions designed to spark new opportunities for collaborative research. The conference will unite the brightest minds in cancer research to discuss and debate some of the greatest issues in the field.

Learning objectives

Although survival rates for most cancers have shown an encouraging upward trend, the fearsome complexity of the brain, and the plethora of different disease subtypes, has left brain tumour survival languishing at the bottom of the table.

The intention is to provide a stimulating environment where scientists from across the research pipeline can showcase new discoveries, spark new collaborations, and create the synergy needed to accelerate progress for patients.

The multidisciplinary programme combines expertise from across the breadth of brain tumour research, together with insights from allied disciplines, to provide attendees with the tools and techniques to apply to their own research.

There will be ample time throughout the conference to network with peers, view posters and continue thought-provoking conversations outside of the agenda.
