Welcome Message

 

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it gives our great pleasure to welcome you to The International Congress of Cancer & Clinical Oncology (CCCO-2019) to be held from December 5-7, 2019 in Singapore.

CCCO-2019 mainly focuses on current hot topics of cancer research and clinical oncology to accelerate the translation of cutting edge discovery from basic science to clinical level, and further promote international scientific cooperation, debate and exchange. It aims to presents a unique platform for prominent surgeons, doctors, academician, scientists and R&D leaders from pharmaceuticals to obtain and exchange information on advances in the basic research, early diagnosis and treatment of cancer, while considering both global and regional aspects.

Through three days meeting, there will be 28 parallel sessions, as well as plenary forum for keynote speeches from distinguished researchers from worldwide, hospital management forum and Industrial Satellite Symposia. We are expecting upwards of 500 participants from all over the world to take part in this event. Poster showcase and table top will run during the same three days. We are confident that over the meeting of the three days there will be something to whet everyone's appetite!

Finally, we are looking forward to welcoming you all to this enriching and stimulating meeting. Hope you will enjoy your stay in the Singapore.

Dr. Karin has received numerous awards, including the Endocrine Society Oppenheimer Award for Excellence in 1990, American Cancer Society Research Professorship in 1999, C.E.R.I.E.S. Research Award for Physiology or Biology of the Skin in 2000, Harvey Prize in Human Health in 2011, Brupbacher Prize in Cancer Research in 2013, William B. Coley Award for Distinguished Research in Basic and Tumor Immunology in 2013, and an honorary Doctor of Medicine from the Technical University of Munich. He was a cofounder of Signal Pharmaceutical, which has become a part of Celgene, Inc. Dr. Karin had also served as a member of the National Advisory Council for Environmental Health Sciences. Dr. Karin was elected as a member of the US National Academy of Sciences in 2005, the National Academy of Medicine in 2011 and as an associate member of the European Molecular Biology Association in 2007. He became a fellow of the American Association for Cancer Research Academy in 2017. Dr. Karin’s current activity primarily focuses on understanding the relationship between inflammation, cancer, and metabolic disease as well as the signaling mechanisms used by receptors involved in inflammation and innate immunity. In addition to discovering some of the most important stress- and inflammation-responsive signal transduction pathways and establishing molecular links between obesity, inflammation and cancer, Dr. Karin’s work has revealed new targets for cancer prevention and therapy as well as for the treatment of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and other metabolic diseases.
