COSMIC will be presenting at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2019 later this month. At this key global event, over 20,000 cancer researchers from around the world will meet in Atlanta to discuss the latest discoveries in cancer research. Covering all aspects of oncology, this conference highlights the work of the top researchers in their respective fields.

Excitingly, the Head of COSMIC, Simon Forbes, has been invited to give a talk. So, if you are attending AACR 2019 make sure you come along and hear him speak at the mini symposium session - Tools for Cancer Genome Analysis(MS.BSB01.01) on 31st March at 3pm in room B206.

Simon will be discussing COSMIC, its breadth across all human cancers, and coverage of multiple mutation mechanisms, and how this can be used to underpin research across precision oncology.

The COSMIC team will be around all week and will also have a poster up about the updated Cancer Gene Census (PO.BSB01.02) so please come up and have a chat with us.
