Cancer Research & Oncology Virtual Event Series 2024

Labroots is excited to bring leading academia and industry experts, research scholars, healthcare and medical professionals, clinicians, oncologists, and top scientists under one virtual roof for the 12th Annual Event in the Cancer Research & Oncology Virtual Event Series, hosted on October 2nd, 2024.  

Cancer Research & Oncology 2024 will offer a 1-day content-rich program providing invited lectures, thought-provoking discussions and posters to explore global developments and advancements in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of different cancer types. Each year, we see progress in immunotherapy and treatments in targeted and personalized therapeutics and drug development, and a decrease in mortality rates due to a strong focus on learning more about the origination of the disease.

Last year's tracks and topics included the following:

Cancer Research:

  • The Role of Evolution and Evolutionary Medicine in Understanding Drug and Radiation Resistance of Cancer
  • The Latest in Immunotherapy and Other Novel Cancer Therapeutics
  • Health Disparities: How Cancer Impacts the Underrepresented and Underserved
  • Integrating Genetics into Standard of Care and Precision Medicine
  • Using Genomics/Genetics to Influence Clinical Applications
  • Image Analysis in Cancer Research and Treatment
  • Cancer Systems Biology
  • Informed Consent in Cancer Research
  • Cancer Health Disparities
