- 7th International Conference of Contemporary Oncology: Personalized Cancer Medicine and Big Data Analysis, 25–27th March 2015, Poznań
Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends,
On behalf of the Organizing and Science Committee we are pleased to invite you to participate in the 7th International Conference of Contemporary Oncology: Personalized Cancer Medicine and Big Data Analysis, part of the “Cancer – a challenge of the 21st century” series, to be held in Poznań, Poland on 25–27th March 2015.
This time the Conference is jointly organized by: the Polish Oncology Consortium (POC), the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Huston, USA (MDAC) and Institute Gustave Roussy, Paris, France (IGR). MDAC is a Sister Institution with both IGR and POC. All the organizing institutions have decided to discuss current developments on the translation of outcomes of large-scale molecular analyses into novel diagnostic tools and targeted therapies. Accordingly, they have delegated their leading senior scientists to take part in this important debate. The list of over 30 confirmed invited speakers is extraordinary, and includes word leaders in oncology and bioinformatics, and the cream of Polish cancer researchers and medical oncologists. Moreover, the floor is open for all interested researchers in the field, especially for young scientists, including students and postgraduates. Please submit abstracts of your work for presentations.
The topics to be specifically discussed, albeit not exclusively, are: (i) Cancer biology, epigenetics and cancer stem cells; (ii) Heterogeneity of cancer and therapeutic implications; (iii) Clinical trials of targeted therapeutics; (iv) Cancer immunotherapy; (v) The Cancer Genome Atlas Project and targeting cancer subsets; (vi) Cancer bioinformatics and Big Data analyses; (vii) Nanotechnologies for cancer diagnostics and therapies; (viii) Multidisciplinary treatment of selected tumor types. Abstracts on other aspects of cancer research and medical oncology will also be accepted for presentation in the “Miscellaneous” sessions.
We trust that Contemporary Oncology and cancer patients will significantly benefit from the Conference. We expect to publish as much as possible from the topics discussed to form a platform for further collaboration, exchange of ideas, technology and expertise. In addition, we trust that the publication will be cited by others.
Once again we sincerely welcome you to Poznań
