Dear Colleagues & Friends,

We are very excited and pleased to invite you to the unique international conference “Emerging Horizons in Oncology: Molecules to Therapeutics Global Perspectives and Challenges” to be held at Gujarat University, Ahmedabad, India from 27th to 29th September 2019. 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.

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.

Discussions will be wide ranging in scope and will be of great interest to clinicians, basic cancer researchers in the academia as well as in the pharmaceutical industry, public health professionals, oncology nurses and allied health professionals. Topics will include, but are not limited to, molecular carcinogenesis and toxicology, molecular mechanisms of all organ site cancers, carcinogenesis, biomarkers for developing therapeutic & prevention strategies, emerging technologies & methodologies in tumorigenesis, carcinogenesis and carcinoprevention research, environmental carcinogenesis including carcinogenic impact of climate change. The sessions in the conference are being designed to give opportunities for practicing physicians and scientists to share their unique expertise with their peers and students. A dedicated session is being planned to give awards to the promising young scientists and clinicians.

The conference will offer oral presentations, panel discussions, clinical case study analyses, and poster presentations to share the research and clinical findings from experts as well as the budding scientists and clinicians. This conference is designed to ignite scientific discussions that could initiate paradigm shifting experiments through long lasting global scientific collaborations.

The organizers of the conference invite you to attend and actively participate in this unique conference. For more information on the conference and to learn about potential opportunities to present your research at the conference, please write to carcinogenesisindia@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India.
