We are excited to announce the 1st Hypoxia Symposium: The Tumour Microenvironment, which will be held at Don Whitley Scientific on October 10th 2019. This one day symposium will be hosted by Don Whitley Scientific and Professor Roger Phillips (Huddersfield University). It is designed to bring together hypoxia users to drive interdisciplinary discussions along with product training on Hypoxystations and Agilent Seahorse devices. To aid and facilitate research in hypoxia there will be no charge for registration fees.

How to book


Places are strictly limited so please register on Eventbrite as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.

To develop the junior members (PhD, Post Docs) wishing to or already pursuing research in hypoxia, as well as senior hypoxic users, there will be talks and poster presentations available. If you wish to be considered for a short presentation or a poster at the symposium please contact the organising committee with a short abstract and the title of your talk. There will be awards in the form of travel grants for the best speaker and the best poster on the day.

Further information in regards to the detailed programme of talks and posters will be e-mailed at a later date.

As all of our products are manufactured in-house, the event will also consist of an introduction to the R&D team and a tour of our facilities. This will provide an insight into how we innovate new concepts from theory through to the finished products.

Food and refreshments will be provided on the day.
