Cancer Research & Oncology 2018

 

 

Our 6th Annual Cancer Research & Oncology Virtual Event is now available On Demand!

This free 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 events, 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.


Topic's for this years event included:

  • Cancer Therapeutics and Vaccines
  • Cancer Epigenetics and Natural History
  • Cancer Microbiome
  • Cancer Diagnostics
     

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.


Call for Speakers —  We are always looking to feature excellent research during our virtual events. If you’re working on some remarkable breakthroughs and would like to submit a speaker or panel for consideration, please submit your abstract here.

Don't forget to participate in our Leaderboard and Scavenger Hunt to win one of our Free Science T-shirts!
