Journal Club 6: Oncology

Time: 15/5/13 at 6.30pm

Location: BOLT A

Well, we’re coming to the end of another academic year and with it we have our final event.

For this journal club we are very pleased to have Dr Rob Jones discussing “Abiraterone and Increased Survival in Metastatic Prostate Cancer”, a trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2011. Dr Jones has also  kindly offered to go over Kaplan-Meier analysis with us, as it plays a part in this trial.

Dr Jones is a great speaker and we hope this night will be valuable to anyone with a particular interest in oncology or academic medicine (or maybe as a primer for next year’s intercal students).

Please have a read over the paper beforehand, it is linked below. As always, our events are free and refreshments will be provided. This will be followed by our Annual General Meeting, with committee positions up for grabs.
