Manchester is European City of Science 2016 – testament to its unique scientific heritage.  Manchester is a city of medical and healthcare pioneers and today provides a climate where innovation can grow and prosper.  It is a haven to top global pharmaceutical, medtech and biotech companies – there are 250 life sciences companies in the region, as well as four universities with a strong track record of working with industry.

In particular, Manchester is a global centre of excellence for cancer research.  The Manchester Cancer Research Centre, a partnership between the University of Manchester, the Christie NHS Foundation Trust and the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute, forms Europe’s largest combined cancer research and treatment centre and is home to EACR President, Richard Marais.

What better place to host EACR24 with its focus on precision medicine from the lab to the bedside?  Our venue is right in the heart of the city, so join us in Manchester to experience everything this vibrant city has to offer!
