Background

We feel it is important to support and encourage the early career researchers we are funding, in order to build the next generation of leading prostate cancer researchers.

This annual event will provide you a prime opportunity to: establish connections with other researchers at a similar stage in their career; meet and hear from some of the leading prostate cancer researchers in the UK; learn more about the work of Prostate Cancer UK; and obtain key skills and advice to help you forge a successful career in prostate cancer research.

What you will get from attending

  • The chance to meet and hear from leading prostate cancer researchers in the UK who will be giving talks on what’s hot in prostate cancer research right now.
  • The chance to establish links with other early career researchers at a similar stage in their career and hear about their research (and the option to present your own research).
  • An opportunity to hear from one of our volunteers who will be sharing their personal story of prostate cancer
