15th International Workshop on Carcinoma-associated Mucins

29th July - 2nd August 2019 - Robinson College, Cambridge, UK

The meeting in July 2019 will be the 15th biennial meeting held at Robinson College Cambridge covering the field of Mucins in Health and Disease.

  • These meetings, which were initiated in 1990 are relatively small - with around 100-120 attendees, many of whom are regulars, and drawn from the global scientific community making for a vibrant International meeting.
  • The participants are drawn from many disciplines, and the programme is arranged to allow plenty of time for proffered papers.
  • The posters are up throughout the meeting, and sessions allowing delegates to present their poster orally (1min/1 slide) have proved to be very successful.
  • The  venue – where all are housed - makes for very good interactions with all participants.
  • As the mucin field has developed, and expanded, the Cambridge meetings have presented a unique opportunity to investigators to interact and have led to the initiation of several productive collaborations.
