Join Versus Arthritis and Cancer Research UK at a three-day innovation ‘sandpit’ workshop taking place on 3-5 April 2019 in Nottingham.
The workshop aims to catalyse new multidisciplinary collaborations across disease areas. This is the second time the two charities have come together to run one of these workshops, at which attendees will be able to bid for seed funding to support their ideas.
The overarching theme for the workshop is modulating tissue immunity in cancer and arthritis and the Director will be Professor Fiona Powrie (with co-Director Professor Kevin Maloy). Workshop attendance is by application only, and the deadline for applying to take part (via a short downloadable form) is on Monday 11 February.
More information is on both charities’ websites under the grant type “Immunology Innovation Award”. (Non-immunologists also welcome to apply).
