Scientific talk – ASCO 2022: Cancer researchers come together for a face-to-face meeting


Leading world cancer researchers will gather in Chicago from June 3 to 7 for the annual ASCO meeting – the first to be held in person since the Covid-19 pandemic. We are looking forward to some of the highlights of the ICR research that will be presented at this year’s meeting.

Starting Friday, researchers at the Cancer Research Institute in London will be part of a global crowd of cancer scientists and clinicians attending and presenting at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in Chicago.

ASCO is perhaps the biggest event on the cancer calendar, and this year’s conference is once again in person after two years of virtual events, a welcome indication that the world is returning to normal after Covid-19. The conference will also be available online, with access to the full program via live streaming and on-demand sessions.

The topic of this year’s meeting is Promoting equitable cancer care through innovationfocusing on the latest scientific advances and discoveries in cancer care that will help improve patients’ lives and contribute to a fairer future, whether through new innovations or smarter use of existing treatments.

We will highlight some of the research presented by researchers at ICR and The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust on the eve of ASCO 2022 – as well as release some exciting research from the conference. Please check our landing page for ASCO 2022 for more information and updates.
