Visit the Children with Cancer UK website CHILDREN with CANCER UK

These are the excellent presentations from the Children with Cancer UK sponsored childhood cancer session organised by Professor Denis Henshaw for the 8th Princess Chulabhorn International Scientific Congress held in Thailand in November 2016.

Venue - Important - watch this space!

The conference venue has changed from the Discovery Musuem to the Copthorne Hotel
This message was posted on 3rd July 2017.


Given the current figure for likely attendance (about 100 people) we have moved the venue to the Copthorne Hotel as this is a better setting for the conference. The Copthorne Hotel is a 4* hotel with excellent facilities where the Speakers and many delegates are staying.
