Cancer Crosslinks 2020 – liquid biopsy topic / opportunity to meet with Harriet Wikman during her time in Norway:

Note that Harriet Wikman from Klaus Pantel’s Team at the UKE Hamburg is a speaker at Cancer Crosslinks. She arrives during Jan 15th and departs on Jan 17th, so there is an opportunity to meet her during her visit (and of course on Jan 16th, networking evening). Jutta at OCC is happy to coordinate if you inform her that you are interested in meeting Harriet Wikman. As usual OCC can cover flight and hotel expenses for representatives from CCBIO joining for Cancer Crosslinks and associated meetings with the speakers.
