Workshop: 16:00-20.00

Colorectal cancer workshop

How can we make clinical impact through fundamental science?

About the workshop

One of Oncode’s goals is to strengthen the link between fundamental researchers and clinicians. Closer collaboration, and deep understanding of each other’s challenges and opportunities, can accelerate the impact fundamental knowledge has on clinical practice. By organising workshops around specific tumour types, Oncode wants to support this goal.

This workshop focuses on colorectal cancer. Through expert presentations and ample room for discussion, it aims to identify clinical challenges, the opportunities afforded by fundamental science, and provide space to explore future collaborations.
