17th International PhD Student Cancer Conference (IPSCC 2024)

Since 2007, the IPSCC has brought together PhD students from top cancer research institutes across Europe.

The focus of the conference is on basic and translational cancer research but we also welcome students who are focusing on clinical, epidemiological, and other areas of cancer research as the whole spectrum of cancer research will contribute to our better understanding of cancer and better treatments for cancer patients.
