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. Recent award of Nobel prize to researchers working in the field of Immuno-oncology is an acknowledgment of the fact that paradigm shifting ideas bear fruits and result in cures for cancer, despite a lag between the initial experiments and the successful therapeutic development
This conference will deliberate on the recent successes of researchers and clinicians working in multi-disciplinary fields to understand the genesis of cancers in order to cure and prevent them. An important aspect of the conference will be multi-focal multi-disciplinary sessions to discuss and identify the challenges faced to combat cancer and deliberate on the approaches to overcome them.
