Event Info

Lymphoid and Myeloid malignancies with Interdisciplinary Techniques (LyMIT) was established in 2022 focused on highlighting exciting novel research that uses interdisciplinary techniques to understand blood cancer. The biological focus is on lymphoid and myeloid biology and malignancy, however the techniques are broad – spanning computational biology, animal models, new molecular techniques, 3D culture systesm, and everything in between. The meeting is organised by the Mitchell Group at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (University of Sussex). We have lined up a diverse and exciting lineup of talks and there will be a poster session with prizes for the best poster presentations.

We look forward to seeing you all in June!


Registration is free, with limited capacity, and open now.

Parking will be available for free on site.

The Falmer junction for the University of Sussex is on the A27 road between Brighton and Lewes, about four miles (six kilometres) from the centre of Brighton.

Visitors driving from London and the north should follow the M23/A23 road towards Brighton. Before you reach Brighton town centre, take the A27 eastbound (joining visitors travelling from West) which is signposted to Lewes.

Simon Mitchell
Senior Lecturer in Cancer Research

My primary research focus is in understanding how intracellular, molecular signalling networks control immune cell fate, and how misregulation of these molecular networks leads to haematological malignancies. My combination of immunology and haematological training lead to a particular interest in B-cell lymphomas.
