Cancer Research & Oncology 2019

The 7th Annual Cancer Research and Oncology Virtual Event is now available On-Demand! This event focuses on advancements in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of different cancer types.

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.

The tracks for this year's event include: 

  • Tumor Drug Resistance and Tumor Evolution
  • Radiation Resistance
  • Novel Cancer Therapeutics and Cancer Prevention
    • Health Disparities in Cancer
  • Molecular Guidance Versus Standard of Care

The free online event brings together 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.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  The webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  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.

Continuing Education

LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 32 credits.
