OcuMel UK 2015 Annual Conference

 In Conferences

We held our fifth annual conference since OcuMel UK was founded in 2011, at the Penta Hotel in Reading on Friday 25th September 2015.

As with other years, this annual event was well attended by patient and family members. We thank our generous sponsors for the day, Delcath Systems and Immunocore; without whom the conference would not have been possible.

Our speakers were on top form as usual, and we thank them for their time and engaging contributions.
