Description of event: Cancer Conference 2011

From Carcinogenesis to Cancer Therapy

Date Wednesday November 9 2011 – Sunday November 13 2011

  • There has been an explosive increase in our understanding of the genetic basis of human carcinogenesis in different tissues, and in our ability to exploit this for improved therapy
  • Most conferences in the field are divisive rather than integrative across these diverse subject areas – delaying the permeation of information across subject boundaries, and delaying the translation of scientific advances to clinical application
  • From Carcinogenesis to Cancer Therapy? will bridge these divides – bringing together leading experts in the mechanisms of carcinogenesis, with experts who have pioneered the technologies and approaches for their exploitation in new treatments
  • The meeting will draw together a small group of world-leading experts, with interested participants from academia and industry, in a format designed to maximize the discussion of new concepts and experimental results
  • From Carcinogenesis to Cancer Therapy? will include sessions that cover recent advances in oncogenic signaling and its intersection with tumour suppressive mechanisms, preclinical models for carcinogenesis and cancer therapy, novel approaches to therapeutics development and their validation in clinical trials
  • The high-quality conference venue not only provides excellent facilities for the meeting, but also ample opportunity for leisure activities, at a five-star resort in Punta Coral in the Playa Del Carmen area, seen as the main gateway to the Riviera Maya.

When it comes to medical and health care in Mexico, many expatriates have their doubts and their fears. Coming from countries with some of the best health care and hospitals in the world, many expatriates just don’t know what to expect in Mexico. The truth of the matter is that there’s no need to panic. In fact Mexico has some very fine hospitals that offer excellent care, and also for considerably less in terms of cost. Have a look at our insurance section for more information.
