about this event

This event has now passed.

The 2017 Ellison-Cliffe lecture will be delivered by Professor Charles Swanton, a multi-award winning clinician scientist with a focus on understanding the challenges inherent in the management of metastatic cancer and their drug resistant and incurable nature.

Register now to hear Professor Swanton discuss the results from the TRACERx study in which the findings have highlighted how genome instability fosters cell-to-cell variation – the substrate upon which Darwinian selection and evolution acts.

These findings help explain the basis for drug resistance, and highlight the need for new approaches to immune-based therapies, drug development, and clinical trial design.  

The Ellison-Cliffe lecture is free to attend and there is an optional dinner following the lecture for an additional £50 per person.
