1st Annual Nutrition and Cancer Networking Meeting

- Location: University of Sheffield

- Cost: £50
This annual networking meeting aims to bring together the UK nutrition and cancer research community to allow interaction between groups working at different scales, cancer sites, and cancer stages.
There is a substantive evidence base around the roles of several nutrients and foods in the pathogenesis of several cancers, however challenges remain in a number of areas, including: achieving dietary change to reduce cancer risk; the molecular basis of nutriprevention; diet-chemotherapy interactions; the role of diet for patients living beyond cancer including in tertiary nutriprevention. The meeting goals are to draw together the UK nutrition and cancer research community to a potentially regularised meeting, to allow interaction between groups working at different scales, cancer sites, cancer stages; to allow early career researchers in the community a forum for presentation; in the case of this first meeting – to explore mechanisms for sustainability of the network.
Registration fee for this event is £50.00 and will include refreshments, lunch, access to sessions plus conference materials including programme booklet.
