Patient-researcher meeting in Tampere on 6.3.24 – on the topic of bowel cancer research

March is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month. To mark the occasion, iCAN, in collaboration with the Colorectal Cancer Association of Finland, is organising an opportunity for people affected by bowel cancer, their relatives and anyone interested in the topic to learn about research being carried out in Tampere. You are welcome to learn more, meet Professor Toni Seppälä and his research team, and see what is done in the research laboratory. Seppälä’s research group is particularly interested in cancer heredity and its biology, and in the development of personalised cancer treatment.

Time: Wed 6.3. from 17:00 to 19:00

Place: F212, Kaupi Campus, Arvo Ylpön katu 34, 33520 Tampere, Finland.
