Hosted by: Canary Center at Stanford, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, Cancer Research UK


Join us from 22-24 October for this year’s conference which is jam-packed with engaging discussions, lightning talks from submitted abstracts and opportunities to network with experts from across the globe. We’ll also see the return of our ‘Great Debates’ as our speakers go head-to-head to debate provocative early detection challenges.

2024 session topics include:

  • How is biology informing early detection?
  • Emerging technologies for cancer early detection
  • Insights from Early Detection Trials
  • Artificial Intelligence – promises vs. reality for early detection


Canary Center at Stanford, OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, and Cancer Research UK present the Early Detection of Cancer Conference series. The annual conference brings together experts in early detection from multiple disciplines to share groundbreaking research and progress in the field.

The Conference is part of a long-term commitment to invest in early detection research, to understand the biology behind early-stage cancers, find new detection and screening methods, and enhance uptake and accuracy of screening.
