The aim of the Away Day is to provide a networking opportunity for postdocs in the Department, a chance to showcase their recent work and facilitate the development of a collaborative atmosphere. Furthermore, the Committee puts a strong emphasis on professional development through talks on specific topics of interest and inspirational keynote speakers.

This year, the Committee has placed a focus on the topic of AI in Cancer for the Away Day. The exciting line-up of speakers will cover: the theory behind modern AI system and how they came to be developed; examples of AI being used in medicine and cancer; and, ways to effectively use computational tools in your research.

To provide an opportunity to showcase research and communication skills, postdocs in the Department are invited to submit 250-word lay abstracts of their work suitable for a non-scientist. Selected authors will be provided the opportunity for a three-minute flash presentation, in which the Committee encourages creativity in communicating their science.
