9th Barossa Meeting 2019 - Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine

9th Barossa Meeting 2019 - Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine

The 9th Barossa Meeting on the theme of ‘Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine’ to take place in the Barossa Valley from 12th – 15th November 2019. 

The Barossa Meetings bring together some of the world’s best scientists across different disciplines in a convivial atmosphere conducive to open and energetic discussions. The 2019 meeting’s theme of ‘Cell Signalling in Cancer Medicine’ will continue this tradition by bringing into focus the major new paradigms arising from fundamental discoveries and their impact on therapeutic strategies. In addition to the numerous international delegates, the meeting will be attended by many of the key Australian researchers in cell signalling and cancer medicine.

As has become tradition, the 9th Barossa Meeting will be the occasion to award the Clifford Prize for Cancer Research to a scientist whose contribution has made a global difference in the fight against cancer
