The NCRI Cancer Conference is the largest cancer research meeting in the UK. This year a number of travel bursaries will be made available to scientists from Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC) in order to enable them to meet with their peers and broaden their knowledge as well as to meet scientists from the UK working in the same area. The bursaries have been made available by the Wellcome Trust. To be eligible for the bursaries, entrants must work in a LMIC and must traveling from the LMIC country to the Conference. They must also have submitted an abstract that has been accepted for presentation and have a fully paid registration for the Conference.

Successful entrants will receive a bursary of up to £1200 and a mentor for the Conference. For further information and to apply visit: [http://conference.ncri.org.uk/travel-awards/].

The NCRI partnership consists of the major government and charity funders in cancer research and the NCRI Cancer Conference offers a unique opportunity to build collaborations with colleagues at home and abroad. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Conference. The meeting has grown from strength to strength over the years and is now the major platform for cancer research in the UK. Participants will learn about world class research underway in the UK and be able to meet the scientists performing the research and discuss their own research work with them.

Additional benefits of submitting research work to the NCRI Cancer Conference include:

  • Showcase your research and receive feedback from your peers
  • Ensure your work is accessible to the UK and international research community
  • Win prizes and awards for the best submissions

Encore abstracts are accepted. Should you be submitting your work to other international conferences, we would ask that you also submit it to the NCRI Cancer Conference. Play your part in helping to showcase the best research at the UK’s largest cancer research meeting and encourage colleagues in your team to submit their work too.

Abstract submission is open until 4 June at: conference.ncri.org.uk/submission.
