The Inaugural Economics of Cancer Research Group Symposium will take place on Monday 2nd September at NUI Galway. This symposium is being undertaken thanks to a Health Research Board, Knowledge Exchange and Dissemination Scheme (KEDS) grant. Registration is free. Registration details for the symposium may be found at the link below.

At the symposium we will have key policymakers, speakers and attendees from Ireland, Europe and the United States. Speakers on the day include Dr Robin Yabroff, National Cancer Institute; Dr Anirban Basu, University of Washington; Professor Richard Sullivan, King's College London; Dr Mauro Laudicella, Imperial College London; Professor Bengt Jonsson, Stockholm School of Economics; Professor Michael Kerin NUI Galway and Dr Linda Sharp, National Cancer Registry Ireland. The Economics of Cancer Research Group will develop a network to facilitate communication and knowledge exchange within the cancer research community and between other stakeholders involved in cancer care including policy makers, advocacy groups, clinicians, academics and the media. It is hoped this group will provide an infrastructure for an ongoing dialogue to facilitate the conduct and dissemination of policy relevant research as well as helping to shape future research agendas in the economics of cancer.
