The 7th Frontiers in Cancer Science (FCS), held on 2nd to 4th November 2015, was proudly and jointly organized by six major cancer research institutes in Singapore – Cancer Science Institute of Singapore, Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore, Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, National Cancer Centre Singapore and National University Cancer Institute, Singapore.
FCS 2015, held at University Cultural Centre located in the National University of Singapore, promised to bring exciting and groundbreaking research in cancer.
Spanning over three days with a lineup of 31 renowned local and international speakers, the conference was a roaring success with 700 local and overseas delegates attending the meeting. The scientific program covered a myriad of cancer-related topics which included basic cancer research, and cancer stem cells.
We had the honor to host keynote speakers Professor Ashok Venkitaraman, Research and Director of MRC Cancer Unit in University of Cambridge, and Professor Tony Hunter, Director of The Salk Institute Cancer Centre.
Concurrently, we saw a good mix of 60 international and local posters, which were carefully selected from an overwhelming abstract response, to present their scientific posters to the conference delegates and the appointed panel of poster judges.
FCS 2015 was an excellent convergent platform for the scientific researchers, clinicians, students and participants to engage in inspiring discussions and it paved the way for many meaningful collaborations.
Join us at the 8th FCS next year on 7th to 9th November 2016!
