Workshop on Drug Delivery to the Brain 2018
Following on from the 2017 launch of The Children's Brain Tumour Drug Delivery Consortium, we are delighted to be able to announce the date for our first workshop - 4th May 2018.
The CBTDDC is committed to strengthening collaborations between an international, multi-disciplinary network of clinicians and researchers whose combined expertise will accelerate the development of drug delivery systems that target brain diseases.
Aiming to advance translational research into drug delivery to the brain, this workshop will be run as an interactive sandpit, with ideas for grant proposals being developed throughout the day.
Representatives from funding bodies (including the EPSRC, Cancer Research UK, The Brain Tumour Charity and Brain Tumour Research) will be on hand to advise on proposals and to present on upcoming funding opportunities. See the Workshop Programme for more details.
The workshop has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom for 6 category 1 (external) CPD credits.

Networking Evening Dinner (optional): Thursday 3 May 2018

Discussions will aim to accelerate translational research into drug delivery systems that could one day be used to treat brain diseases, including children's brain tumours.
Delegates should be in a position to act as Principal or Co-Investigator on a grant, and be passionate about accelerating progress through open dialogue and collaborative research.
