Logistics – CANSA Research in Action Conference – July 2018

The Cancer Association of SA (CANSA) and the University of Pretoria are pleased to announce that the next CANSA Research in Action Conference will be held at the University of Pretoria in the Tswelopele complex (Prinshof campusFaculty of Health Sciences) from Tuesday, 3rd July to Thursday, 5th July 2018. Download the advertisement.

Prinshof is an area in Pretoria. It is the home of the Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Pretoria and the Steve Biko Hospital (formerly the Pretoria Academic Hospital). Prinshof is also the name of a school in Pretoria for partially sighted children.

We are anticipating that the Cancer Research Conference at Prinshof campus will be the place where intellectual “sparks” can and will ignite. We see this as an incubator for South African cancer research.
