  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present the 2nd Annual Oncology Clinical Development Congress 2013 which will be held on the 14th & 15th October 2013, at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate, UK.

    It is estimated that each year 12.7million people are diagnosed with cancer across the globe. Our experts will discuss the latest advances in the development of targeted therapies and explore their translation into clinical trials.

On day one hear from industry leaders working at the forefront of oncology co-development. Topics for discussion include mechanisms of cancer drug resistance, strategies to reach critical go/no go decisions and novel imaging technologies.

    On day two our distinguished speakers will explore case studies of global clinical trials, strategies to overcome operational challenges and methods to ensure effective patient recruitment and retention. Our experts will discuss approaches to reduce clinical timelines, cost of adaptive clinical trial designs and methods of methods of appropriate site selection.
