This year's annual Bloodwise Grantholders' Day will be held on Monday 31st October at the Institute of Child Health, London. We will have a regular programme of talks from Bloodwise grantholders to hear the latest progress and breaks to allow attendees to meet each other and share ideas. We know it's a challenging time at the moment, so this year we're also introducing a lunchtime session with the research funding team to provide an opportunity to share and discuss with you plans for research funding in 2017 and beyond. To register yourself and other members of your group for the day, please see here.
The day will conclude with the Annual Guest Lecture, which this year will be given by Dr Michel Sadelain, Director of the Centre for Cell Engineering and Head of the Gene Transfer and Gene Expression Laboratory at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Dr Sadelain's research focuses on human cell engineering and cell therapy to treat cancer and hereditary blood disorders. His laboratory has made several influential contributions to the field of CARs. His group was the first to publish dramatic molecular remissions following treatment with targeted T cells in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia who did not respond to chemotherapy. To register your attendance for the Annual Guest Lecture, please follow this link. Please note multiple people can be registered on the same form.
The 6th annual Bloodwise Student and Clinical Fellows' Day will be held on the following day, Tuesday 1st November 2016 at The Royal College of Surgeons. This day is the annual meeting for Gordon Piller PhD students and Clinical Research Training Fellows. We encourage supervisors to come and meet the other students and hear about their important work. To register your attendance please see here.
