CERVIVA is pleased to announce that it will hold a research symposium on the 12th June. The symposium will highlight the consortium’s research projects currently underway in the area of cervical screening and other HPV associated diseases. Professor Heather Cubie from the University of Edinburgh will be giving the keynote lecture of the day on global cervical cancer burden. Dr Grainne Flannelly, clinical director of CervicalCheck, will be giving a talk on the new cervical screening protocols and future challenges for the national screening programme.
The symposium follows the success of CERVIVA’s first research day held in 2012. Researchers, health professionals and many of CERVIVA’s multi-disciplinary collaborators will be in attendance on the day. The meeting will provide the opportunity to showcase CERVIVA’s diverse research programme as well as outline a roadmap for future research priorities. A provisional agenda for the day with more information on the symposium venue and research talks is now available.
