The first CLLSA meeting in Scotland
Monday 22nd September 2014
10.00am – 4.00pm
Grand Central Hotel
99 Gordon Street
Glasgow G1 3SF
All members are invited to our first meeting in Scotland on the 22nd of September 2014. We are privileged to have Dr Alison McCaig MBChB, MRCP, FRCPath, PhD as our keynote speaker.
Dr McCaig is a consultant in the haematology department of the Royal Alexandra Hospital, Paisley. She also works for one day a week in the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre, running the CLL clinic, along with Dr Mike Leach. A large part of this role is to increase the number of UK CLL trials that are run locally, and Dr McCaig is the primary investigator on two current trials. She took her PhD at the Paul O'Gorman Leukaemia Research Laboratory, University of Glasgow, and still maintains links with the lab where her work involves the investigation of novel therapeutic targets in CLL.
The programme will be a combination of presentations and discussions focussing on living with CLL and current treatments in the morning session. In the afternoon the focus will switch to the latest CLL trials and future developments in CLL research and treatments.
Dr McCaig will be joined by a member of her research team who will give a brief presentation of the latest research work in which they are involved. We will also ensure the patient perspective is built into the programme when CLL patients from Scotland will share their experiences with members.
The day will begin with coffee during registration (10.00-10.30) and lunch and afternoon tea are provided. A more detailed programme will be forwarded in due course.
The conference is free for CLLSA members. Membership is free and you can enrol as a member at http://www.cllsupport.org.uk/membership.htm or by phone or post as below.
We urge you to book your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
