The 8th Annual CRUK Oxford Centre Symposium was held on 28th June 2019 at the Saïd Business School, Oxford. The day consisted of a varied programme of presentations, ranging from cancer big data to cancer immune responses, and ended with a keynote talk from Prof. Tak Mak from the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto. Ludwig Oxford’s Philip Macklin from Peter Ratcliffe’s group presented a joint talk with Joshua Bell (Mathematical Institute) on the development and validation of a digital pathology pipeline to better characterise the spatial distribution of immune cell infiltrates in cancer.
