Precision Cancer Biology and Medicine

The conference will cover the latest exciting developments in our detailed understanding of the biology and genomics of cancer and the important translation of this understanding into personalized, precision treatment for cancer patients. It will include eight oral sessions and one poster session covering new findings across a wide range topics in basic cancer biology, genetics, genomics and medicine. Therapeutic aspects will include molecular targeted drugs and immunological approaches together with the mechanisms and treatment of drug resistance. In addition, many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance to the theme of the conference. Social events organized throughout the conference will provide ample opportunity for informal interactions between speakers and other attendees.
