A one-day workshop “Cancer Research and Global Health” has been organised to inform the cancer community about all funding opportunities for global health across the MRC’s remit, and it will be an ideal setting for researchers to discuss ideas.

·        a panel discussion on multidisciplinary research, the potential of novel technologies and opportunities in health systems development

·        plenty of opportunities for networking and informal discussions


A final agenda will be announced in due course.

Applications for this workshop are open to researchers that are:
