The 2019 Early Detection of Cancer Conference @ Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center

The Canary Center at Stanford, founded in 2009 as the first research center in the world, entirely dedicated to cancer early detection, The Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health & Science University, a leader in precision cancer medicine, and Cancer Research UK, the largest independent funder of cancer research globally have formed an international collaboration to accelerate research in the early detection of cancer.

The goal of this unique trans-Atlantic agreement is to find lethal cancers as they’re forming so they can be treated more effectively. Survival increases significantly when the disease is treated at an early stage.

The collaboration also seeks to accelerate progress by breaking down barriers for scientists, including:

  • A lack of cohorts of sufficient size and a shortage of clinical samples available for research
  • Development and deployment of new technologies
  • Lack of understanding of the biology of early cancer and technologies to detect its features

2019 conference topic list includes:

  • Integrative Early Detection through multiple technologies
  • Prognostic Early Detection
  • Signals from beyond the tumor
  • Integrative Susceptibility for Early Detection
  • Fostering a translational mentality in Early Detection Research
