The number of people diagnosed with cancer every year is set to grow to around 22 million by 2030. This is a global challenge, and one that requires faster progress and a more coordinated approach. Advances in research related to cancer bring unprecedented opportunities and challenges, for which we need to proactively bring the cancer research community and other stakeholders together to address them.

Beyond the Horizon is an ambitious new meeting series that aims to facilitate knowledge-sharing and generate dialogue across disciplines with a view of accelerating progress in cancer-related research. It will provide a platform to enable the right people to come together and have the right conversations at the right time to develop proactive approaches to address challenges and capitalise on opportunities.

Following an open call for topic suggestions, we are pleased to announce that the topic of the first Beyond the Horizon meeting will be “Innovative Drug Discovery”. Please check back for further announcements on dates and registrations.
