Cancer Research & Immuno-Oncology Week 2022

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 at our 10th annual Cancer Research & Immuno-Oncology Week, hosted on October 4-6, 2022.  

Cancer Research & Immuno-Oncology Week 2022 will offer a 3-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.

Recent breakthroughs in immuno-oncology research translate into a paradigm shift in attacking cancer, and the benefits of immuno-oncology have resulted in long-lasting tumor regression where surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy proved less effective. As immuno-oncology is considered by some to be one of the most promising areas of research in the world of anti-cancer therapeutics, you'll also learn from experts how immunotherapies can work alone, together, or in a combination with other treatments to fight cancer.

This year's tracks include the following:
