War on Cancer

December 6, 2016

Innovative approaches to cancer treatment, prevention and care are emerging at an unprecedented rate. However, the policies and systems in place to deliver these advancements to people are lagging behind. Currently in the UK it takes an average of 10 years and costs £1 billion to get a new medicine from the research lab to the patient.

Whether we are fighting cancer with novel therapies or adopting the latest preventative guidance, we must ensure that our systems are up to the task of delivering progress. How do we scale the knowledge and capability in oncology that we already have and prepare for what’s coming?

Join over 150 global leaders in oncology at the second annual War on Cancer summit, taking place on December 6th in London. The conference will explore solutions to the mismatch in progress and delivery coming to light across Europe. Over the course of the day expect to discover new approaches to cancer prevention and treatment, solutions to overcome shortcomings in delivery, examples of best practice and opportunities for cross-sectoral collaboration.

All EMJ supporters attending will receive a special 15% discount, quote EMJ/DC when booking online.
