There's a lot of a difficult transitions in moving from a health system to an academic health system. There's issues that come up around education, delivery of care, time for teaching and research, integrating the research results you get into practice. Those are important difficult discussions, and you got to have a venue to have them and this Conference allows people to come together and talk about them!

Oncology, and Cancer and Stem Cell Biology Symposium
Asian Cancer

 Track type: Symposium

Date: 17 Sep 2021


 Time: 1540 - 1640

Location: Seminar Room 5

Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide. In contrast to other world regions, the proportion of cancer deaths in Asia is higher than the proportion of incident cases, partially because Asia has a higher frequency of certain cancer types associated with poorer prognosis and higher mortality rates. This symposium would share the research findings that reveal the mechanisms of why certain cancers arise more frequently in Asia. Understanding the mechanisms will help us develop the strategies to screen, prevent, and care for the patients.
