Join us at AIMday Cancer 2018

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world today. Many years of research have led to an increased understanding of the underlying disease causes and mechanisms, and this new knowledge has helped develop better cancer prevention and treatment. However, a lot remains to be done to reduce the number of deaths, advance treatment and improve quality of life for patients.

We invite academic scientists, clinicians and company representatives to AIMday Cancer for discussions on new approaches and solutions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
