The Cambridge Cancer Epigenetics Club (CCEC) is a monthly seminar series which aims to promote learning, discuss developments, spark collaboration and allow networking in the field of cancer epigenetics. With this virtual platform we aim to bring experts in the field together to present inspiring talks that share cutting edge research from leading labs around the globe. CCEC will provide greater accessibility and flexibility for networking this year when we have been unable to attend conferences and symposia due to the COVID situation.
