To be held on: 22 October 2020
After the success of the 1st Hypoxia Symposium held in 2019, we are delighted to announce that we plan to hold a similar event again on October 22nd 2020. The full programme will be made available in due course, but we are pleased to confirm that speakers so far include Dr Ester Hammond, Professor Sonia Rocha, Dr Scott Allen, Dr Isabel Pires, Dr James Nathan and Professor Karen Kirkby.
In October 2019 we hosted the 1st Hypoxia Symposium: The Tumour Microenvironment at our head office in Bingley, West Yorkshire. This event brought together hypoxia researchers from all over the UK; providing an opportunity to hear from a variety of speakers engaged in fascinating work.
Speakers included Professor Roger Phillips, Dr Simon Allison, Dr Violaine See, Dr Klaus Pors, Dr Jacobo Elies Gomez, Dr Ayse Latif, Dr Nick Perry, Professor Stewart Martin and Professor Alan McIntyre.
Topics included data on brain, colon, breast and gynaecological cancers and the development of novel strategies to improve the therapeutic index by targeting the hypoxic fraction of these cancers, along with ways to exploit cancer cells’ metabolic dependencies.
PhD students were given a chance to present posters as the delegates mingled over lunch, and two travel grants of £250 were awarded for the best posters.
There was also a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes at Don Whitley Scientific and learn about our history, R&D process and have a tour of the factory to see how Whitley Hypoxystations are made.
We were thrilled to receive some excellent feedback after the event, comments included:
“A really enjoyable 1st hypoxia symposium - great talks, lots of networking and brilliant to see behind-the-scenes the very impressive DWS facilities and factory floor!”
