Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute


It is our pleasure to announce the return of our ‘Applications of in situ hybridisation in research and disease' symposium. The symposium, organised by a committee chaired by Dr Julia Jones, will be held at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute on the 17-18 May 2017. The meeting will highlight advances in in situ hybridisation and it's application in disease. To achieve these goals we have assembled an outstanding list of world-leading researchers to present their work.

This two-day conference is intended to bring together all researchers across any field interested in ISH. We have lined up a broad range of topics from leaders in the field including: Current Accepted Methods, Evolutionary Biology, Emerging Techniques, and Translational Research.

We will also have a short session entitled ISH Clinic, where talks will be entirely selected from submitted abstracts. This is an opportunity to give a short presentation on interesting results, a troubleshooting case study or a top tip you would like to share. Presentations should be 5 minutes each with a maximum of 2 PowerPoint slides. There will then be a networking event during the evening drinks reception for you to discuss your presentation with other delegates. This is ideal for a first presentation at an International Symposium. Please email if you have any questions about this.


The Symposium will take place at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute which is housed in the Li Ka Shing Centre on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, just south of Cambridge city centre. You can find out how to get to the Institute and find out more about CRUK CI here.


Accommodation is not included in the registration fee. A number of guest houses and hotels are available within easy reach of the Institute and the city centre. Please look at the Visit Cambridge website to find suitable places to stay.
