3rd School 2021

The start of the pandemic halted our plans for a third International School in April 2020. Instead, we delivered our first full virtual event in collaboration with technology partners Venue AV in April 2021: deemed a great success, CanTest senior faculty and upcoming researchers worked together over three days of shared learning, online networking and virtual cocktails.

A programme of recorded and live talks with interactive large group and small group sessions on on a wide range of topics from emerging biomarkers and inequalities to the impact of COVID-19 on cancer research was led by CanTest Director of Faculty Dr Fiona Walter. We also had invited external speakers including Professor Emma Crosbie (Manchester), Dr Phil Crosbie (Manchester), Professor Steve Pereira (UCL), Professor David Hunter (Oxford) and GRAIL Europe’s Director of Cancer Intelligence, Sarah Hiom.
