Do words like signal transduction, immuno-oncology, checkpoint inhibitors, genomics and biomarkers bring a puzzled frown to your face? Do you plan to attend today’s plenary lectures whilst fearing that you won’t understand a word? Well never fear!Elaine will explain many of the words, concepts and ideas behind the day’s plenary lectures. Similar to previous years’ workshops, she will use diagrams and illustrations to provide clear, easy-to-understand explanations of complicated biological concepts.The workshop is geared towards non-scientists, such as doctors, nurses, trials staff and patients who’d like to get the most out of this year’s conference.
