Welcome to the Black in Cancer Conference: empowering the next generation, in partnership with Cancer Research UK.


We’re delighted to be welcoming you to London for the inaugural Black in Cancer event for two days of scientific sessions, keynote speakers, panel discussions and workshops focusing on the themes of research, equality and patient experience. The event will also include ample time for formal and informal networking as well as mentoring opportunities and poster sessions.
