TUMOUR RESPONSE ASSESSMENTS - RECIST (ONLINE WORKSHOP)

Friday 8th March, 9am-1pm. 

*Posted on behalf of Prof Jon Wadsley, NIHR National Specialty Lead Radiotherapy and Imaging*


Dear Colleagues,


We invite interested parties to join us for a virtual RECIST Study Day on Friday 8th March, 9am-1pm. 


We will be discussing the challenges around accessing timely imaging to assess tumour response in cancer clinical trials and hearing from teams who have developed innovative approaches to solving these challenges. The meeting will be of interest both to investigators who are delivering cancer clinical trials, and to colleagues in radiology departments with responsibility for clinical trial imaging. A full programme for the meeting will follow shortly.


This event may be of interest to:
• Radiologists, clinicians, research nurses, radiographers and industry representatives involved in providing/ utilising tumour measurements in clinical trials.
• Research network, professional and commercial organisation representatives involved in cancer clinical trials.
• Radiographers interested in upskilling and/or providing local tumour measurement service.


CPD points will be available through Royal College of Radiologists and Society and College of Radiographers schemes for attendance at the meeting.

Ahead of the event we are keen to assess local needs, challenges and requirements for these services and would be very grateful if you would take some time to complete a short survey using the following link/QR code- https://forms.office.com/e/Ai3xPuPX9C.

INDUSTRY RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY WITH BIONTECH FOR ONCOLOGY TRAINEES

In July 2023, BioNTech signed a long-term partnership agreement with the UK, with the goal of working together to develop new cancer therapies for the benefit of NHS patients. This includes an accelerated clinical trials program supported by NIHR and NHS England, agreeing to deliver 10,000 cancer vaccines to patients in the UK by 2030. BioNTech have a diverse portfolio of trials in cancer vaccines and next generation immunotherapies, currently being brought to the UK. With this in mind, it is an exciting time to be involved in these latest technologies and trials and this role offers a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of the national cancer vaccine advance.

BioNTech are expanding their UK team and it is an exciting time to be involved in the national cancer vaccine advance. Research interest and experience is important, and whilst previous industry experience is a bonus it is certainly not required. The role as a medical science liaison includes serving as the link between trial investigators and BioNTech, but also supporting global trials teams with activities from clinical development and early protocol discussion, to overseeing regulatory approvals and inputting on general strategy for the UK partnership and initiatives such as the Cancer Vaccine Launchpad.


This role is primarily remote, and ideal as an out of programme experience for medical or clinical oncologists. Duration is flexible, but a minimum of 1 year (2-3 years recommended.)

If interested, please contact rosie.mew@biontech.co.uk
