The first UK Childhood Cancer Conference took place in Birmingham on 14th May 2014, bringing together parents and professionals and with a focus on childhood cancer research.


"This has been a wonderful meeting of professionals and parents – very refreshing and I leave today with a great deal to think about and to share with friends and colleagues."

The programme included updates on current developments and research in leukaemia, brain and central nervous system tumours, and solid tumours. Breakout sessions allowed participants to explore the potential of organisations working together to maximise research funding, and to consider how parents can be involved in research, including setting research priorities. The programme concluded with looking at recent advances in cancer treatment, and considering the issues around early diagnosis and how this might be improved.
