Milner Therapeutics Symposium 2024

Symposium Overview

Registration is now open for the Milner Therapeutics Symposium 2024! On Tuesday 2nd July, a fantastic line-up of speakers will present live at West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge, with talks also streamed to an online platform.

Our Annual Symposium is an opportunity for scientists from academia and industry to discuss the latest academic and pre-clinical research and how it could be applied in the pharma and biotech industry to develop new treatments. It is our key networking event for Milner Therapeutics Institute partner organisations.

The 2023 Symposium had a full house of 500 in-person attendees and we anticipate high demand for places at our 2024 Symposium.
Registration for the 2024 Symposium will close on 19th June.

If you have questions about the Symposium, please email »
