AICR supports a number of scientific meetings and conferences throughout the year. In 2012/13 they include:
FEBS Workshop - Molecular and Cellular Mechanisms in Angiogenesis
- 14-17 October 2012
- Hotel La Palma/Palazzo dei Congressi, Capri, Italy
- The workshop focused on molecular factors and multiple cellular elements, mainly inflammatory cells, involved in new vessel formation. Among the model systems of pathological angiogenesis, attention will be focused on cancer and ocular neovascularization. The latest advancements in therapeutic approaches to control neovascularization were presented.
- On Sunday October 14th, AICR sponsored a talk by Lena Claesson-Welsh on VEGFR2 signalling pathways; in vivo mapping.
NCRI Cancer Conference
- 3-7 November 2012
- BT Convention Centre, Liverpool
- The conference themes were Diagnosis and Therapy, Epidemiology & Prevention, Information, Patients & the Public, Survivorship & End of Life Care, The Cancer Cell and Model Systems and Tumour Specific Research.
- AICR supported the conference with a trade stand.
- A number of sessions focusing on clinical oncology were organised in collaboration with the Royal College Radiologists (RCR). Two lecture sessions took place on Tuesday 6 November, one on lung cancer and another on acute oncology.
Genes & Cancer Meeting 2012

- On Tuesday 19th March, AICR will sponsor Dr Anna Bigas from Fundacio Institut Mar d’Investigacions Mediques (IMIM), Barcelona, Spain to speak on Stem Cells and Regeneration.
FASEB - Regulation and Function of Small GTPases
- 2-6 June 2013
- The conference will be held in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, USA. FASEB conferences are designed to be held in unique destinations specialized in hosting small groups of professionals, who meet closely and without distractions to explore new approaches to research areas undergoing rapid scientific change.
- A series of talks and workshops will be held with speakers from all over the world. AICR will sponsor a speaker for the event.
RUNX transcription factors in development & disease
- 6-19 June 2013
- The EMBO workshop will take place in Wilsede, a village in the middle of the Lüneburg Heath in Northern Germany (between Hamburg and Hannover).
- The purpose of this EMBO Workshop is to bring together scientists of different disciplines to discuss new findings on RUNX transcription factors in development and disease. The underlining aim is to expose researchers to different systems (e.g. hematopoiesis, osteogenesis, neurogenesis), different model systems (invertebrate and vertebrate), and different cellular processes (stem cell maintenance, cell cycle control, and differentiation) to stimulate new ideas and synergistic interactions.
- AICR is a sponsor of the event.
International Cancer Conference – PHD Students
- 19-21 June 2013
- The conference is organised annually by PhD students from top international cancer research institutes. This year it is hosted by the Cancer Research UK, London Research Institute (LRI).
- Each delegate will present their work in the form of a poster if they are not giving a talk. The AICR will award the Prize for Best Poster
Beatson Conference – Targeting the Tumour Stroma
- 7-10 July 2013
- University of Glasgow
- This meeting will highlight recent exciting research into the role played by the tumour stroma in cancer progression and how agents may be developed to treat the disease by targeting tumour associated cells, such as immune cells and fibroblasts, the tumour vasculature and the tumour extracellular matrix.
8th European Zebrafish Meeting
- 9-18 July 2013
- Held in Barcelona, Spain, the meeting will bring scientists from all over the world together to discuss the latest developments with Zebrafish in the form of sessions, workshops, poster sessions and accompanying social events.
- AICR will sponsor Liz Patton who will chair the session on cancer.
Translational Workshop on Ataxia Telangiectasia
- 25-27 July 2013
- University of Birmingham
