Invitation to a Lynch Syndrome Research Working Group Meeting

Updated on: 12 Oct 2021   First published on 12 Oct 2021

The British Society for Genetic Medicine would like to invite you and any interested colleagues to take part in a Lynch Syndrome Research working group meeting, to be hosted on Tuesday 23rd November between 1pm – 5pm.

The purpose of this meeting is to foster nation-wide collaborative clinical and translational research for this patient population (LynchNET UK). The afternoon will focus in particular on registry studies, clinical trials, and (virtual) biobanking. The aim is to come to a list of shared UK research priorities which are impactful and multidisciplinary, with a view to supporting such research through the working group. These sessions will be preceded by introductory talks highlighting current gaps and a Dragon’s Den event where a small number of junior researchers can highlight their work for a chance to compete for a research prize. Of course, they very much welcome your suggestions for research priorities ahead of the meeting, as well as entries for talks and the Dragon’s Den event.

Please contact Marnix Jansen at UCL on M.jansen@ucl.ac.uk as soon as possible on whether you will attend and do share this invitation with any colleagues that might be interested. The remote event will be hosted by the RCPath conference organising team and you will be receiving login details from them.

Please get in touch should you have any further questions or suggestions.

With best regards, also on behalf of:
