Cancer Research & Oncology 2018
9 1 288

The 6th Annual Cancer Research & Oncology Virtual Event will take place October 2018. The free, two-day online event will bring research professionals, scientists, and clinicians from around the world to learn and discuss recent advances in cancer research. As with all LabRoots event, the Cancer Research and Oncology Event encourages a worldwide collaboration and connections between colleagues and field experts.
 

Cancer research has made major advancements in diagnosis, treatments, and the basic understanding of the disease itself. Each year we see progress in immunotherapy, treatments involving nanotechnology, advances in targeted and personalized therapeutics and drug development, and a decrease in mortality rates due to a strong focus on learning more about the origination of the disease.
 

Cancer Research & Oncology 2018 will focus on advancements in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of different cancer types. The world’s thought leaders in cancer research will present their latest discoveries in cancer mechanics and detection as well as clinical aspects such as targeted therapies and novel treatments, all in an international venue conducive to networking.
 

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. You can participate in exactly those parts which you are interested in and be back at your desk or bench in an instant. Virtual events remove time and place restrictions and ensure that everyone who wants to participate can do so. This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global cancer community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.
