These are the excellent presentations from the Children with Cancer UK sponsored childhood cancer session organised by Professor Denis Henshaw for the 8th Princess Chulabhorn International Scientific Congress held in Thailand in November 2016.

Poster Abstracts

We invite the submission of Poster Presentations on the conference themes of causes, causal factors and mechanisms, treatment and possible actions for prevention relevant to paediatric and TYA cancer.

These do not have to describe your current work, but can be more wide-ranging, including evidence-based hypotheses to help scientic and medical debate about new ways to make progress in the future.

Poster Presenters get a substantial discount on the 3-day ticket price
(£120 for the 3-day ticket instead of £300).

       The submission deadline for Abstracts is Friday 29th June 2018. If accepted, these will be printed in the Conference Programme Booklet.

Late Abstracts may be accepted, but will not be reproduced in the printed conference booklet.
