Access the latest thinking from Europe’s leading cancer research organisation. The ICR and One Nucleus are pleased to invite you to a breakfast seminar to explore the latest thinking from the ICR and opportunities to collaborate.

The ICR is one of the world’s most influential cancer research organisations. Our discoveries have led to many new treatments for people with cancer, and we consistently rank at or near the top of national and international rankings of academic innovation, impact on society and research excellence.

We are well known for establishing productive partnerships with industry, along with major research successes such as our discovery of the prostate cancer drug abiraterone. We have more than 100 current partnerships ranging from small, specialised biotech and medtech firms to big pharma.

Join ICR Chief Executive Professor Paul Workman, Director of Enterprise Dr Angela Kukula, and ICR researchers and clinicians to learn more about our cutting-edge research, our culture of collaboration with industry, recent examples of our success and upcoming opportunities.

Hear about the benefits of cross-organisational working to both academia and industry in talks from Tony Jones, CEO of One Nucleus – the international life science and healthcare industry membership organisation, and from Tom Heightman, Head of Chemistry at Astex Pharmaceuticals.

Most importantly, the morning will provide an opportunity to start conversations about how we can mutually share expertise to progress the discovery and development of potential cancer drugs and technologies to improve the lives of cancer patients and their families.

This event is run in partnership with One Nucleus – Life Science and Healthcare membership organisation. This event is free, but places are limited. Please register to guarantee your place.
