Poster Abstracts

We invite the submission of Poster Presentations on the conference theme of 'developments Precision Medicine' relevant to paediatric and TYA oncology and malignant haematology. The submission deadline for Abstracts is 19th June 2017.

We are especially calling for Posters in four areas

  • Diagnostics and prognostics
    submissions should deal with the impact of precision medicine technology on accuracy of diagnosis and/or on improved accuracy of prognosis and stratification of therapy
  • Disease Modelling, Identification of New Therapeutic Targets
    submissions should focus on preclinical work including clinical models which may lead to new therapies
  • Current Clinical Trials and Health Economics
    submissions should focus on current or planned clinical trials of “targeted therapies”. We would also welcome submissions concerning the cost benefit of precision medicine
  • Prediction of toxicity
    submissions should focus on the application of precision medicine technology to the prediction and possible amelioration of short and or long term toxicity of treatment


  • Abstracts must be based on original, unpublished research which is not currently submitted elsewhere
  • The research reported must relate to the conference Precision Medicine themes
