The Université de Lyon’s DEVweCAN and PRIMES laboratories of excellence (LabEx), the Europa Donna organization, the Inserm and Spacejunk are organizing a new session of the “When patients meet research” (QP2R) symposium.

Following the numerous exchanges between researchers and organizations working in the field of cancer, the QP2R organizing committee decided to continue the process in 2019 by proposing a more global approach to the health issue.

This year, the symposium will focus on circadian rhythms, how their alterations affect cancer research and the importance of chronobiology in therapy, but also on how to care for young patients after treatment.

This day of lectures, a documentary screening and discussions will be held in the Université de Lyon Auditorium (92 rue Pasteur, 69007 Lyon) on Thursday, November 18, 2021 from 9 AM to 4:30 PM. The program includes:
