4th CRIG industrial partnering event


We are glad to invite you to the 4th edition of the industrial partnering event of the Cancer Research Institute Ghent (CRIG) on Friday 6th October 2023. 
After 3 successful biennial events, the CRIG will bring together different actors in the oncology ecosystem to discuss the latest innovations in cancer research, and create new basis for synergic collaborations. We strongly believe that building bridges among different innovators strengthens the fight again cancer, delivers solutions faster to the patients, and helps achieving early and less invasive cancer diagnosis.
The 4th CRIG industrial partnering event welcomes principal investigators, clinicians and senior postdocs from CRIG and research/non-profit institutions, as well as company delegates active in the field of life sciences.
