Event Details


Unfortunately, due to the current situation with the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus and the guidelines issued by the University of Bergen and the Helse Bergen University Hospital, the CCBIO Annual Symposium May 12-13 and the Satellite Symposium on Biomarkers in Immunotherapy May 11 has been cancelled.


The Centre for Cancer Biomarkers has the pleasure of inviting you to the 8th CCBIO Symposium, 12-13 May 2020 at Solstrand Hotel. The Symposium will be preceded by a Satellite symposium on Immunotherapy on 11 May 2020.

With so many participants in a very international mix, this is a great opportunity for international networking within the field of cancer research. The beautiful surroundings at the historical hotel Solstrand provide an ideal frame for the symposium with the serene fjord views, fresh air, great food and spacious areas, with a little touch of Norwegian history.

You can be looking forward to lots of interesting research by international experts in their fields, such as Robert D’AmatoSylvia K. PlevritisRameen BeroukhimMarco DavilaSilvio GutkindMichael RogersMalin SundKlaus PantelGuido SauterMorag ParkAntony Braithwaite and Amir Aref.

The symposium will also feature other senior and junior researchers, extended poster sessions where younger researchers can present their work, and ample time for interaction between the participants. The selection of which participants that can present their posters is done on the basis of the submitted abstracts.

The symposium is open for all, so please feel free to pass on this information.
