Are you interested in learning more about the application of genomics in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer? Would you like to learn more about ways to move your research from bench to bedside? If so TGIO is a virtual event hosted by the CRUK Cambridge Centre’s Onco-Innovation Programme, jointly with the Early Detection Programme and University Enterprise Zone. Its aim is to increase awareness of entrepreneurship opportunities in Cambridge related to genomics in oncology, and foster multidisciplinary collaboration to solve key challenges across the entire patient pathway from risk prediction to treatment monitoring. Hear from speakers and panellists including Dr Michael Salako (CRUK-Start Codon), Dr Kathryn Chapman, (University Enterprise Zone) and Dr Charlie Massie (University of Cambridge).


Supported by the University Enterprise Zone, Start Codon and Illumina Accelerator, the TGIO event will also see the launch of a multidisciplinary entrepreneurial challenge with exciting prizes to be won including a £10,000 Sequencing Grant, Entrepreneurial Mentorship and Coaching Sessions and a fast-track to the final application round of Illumina Accelerator Cambridge. To enter the challenge, the lead applicant must be an academic based in Cambridge, have attended the TGIO event and be part of a multidisciplinary team application.
