Systems Oncolgy - 2017

Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochin, India

We are very excited and pleased to invite you to the unique conference “Systems Oncology:  integrated Approaches to understand and Cure Cancer” to be held at the Amrita Institute, Kochi, India from 3 to 5 February 2017.  This conference will celebrate the successes of researchers and clinicians working in multidisciplinary fields to understand the genesis of cancers in order to cure and prevent.  An important aspect of the conference will be to identify the challenges faced to combat cancer and deliberate on the approaches to overcome them.

Discussions will be wide ranging in scope and will be of great interest to clinicians, basic cancer researchers in the academia as well as in the pharmaceutical industry, public health professionals, oncology nurses and allied health professionals.  Topics will include, but are not limited to, molecular mechanisms of all organ site cancers, carcinogenesis, biomarkers for developing therapeutic & prevention strategies, emerging technologies & methodologies in tumorigenesis, carcinogenesis and carcinoprevention research.  While great advances have been made in terms of understanding the molecular basis of cellular transformation, translation of these basic findings into effective patient care has been a challenge to the researchers.  This is partly because the gap between basic biology & medical practice is yet to be bridged effectively.   The sessions in the conference are being designed to give opportunities for practicing physicians and scientists to share their unique expertise with their peers and students.

The conference will offer oral presentations, panel discussions, and poster presentations, to share the research findings from experts as well as budding scientists and clinicians.  This conference is designed to catalyze scientific discussions that could initiate paradigm shifting experiments through long lasting global scientific collaborations.

The organizers of the conference invite you to attend and actively participate in this unique conference.  For more information on the conference and to learn about potential opportunities to present your research at the conference, please write to Oncology2017@CarciKnow.org.  We look forward to seeing you in Kochi, Kerala.
