Cancer Diagnosis & Therapy Congress

London, United Kingdom

Description  

The two day program will address key concerns such as cancer Immunotherapy, molecular targeted therapy, metabolomics in cancer tumour assessments & profiling, nanotechnology in cancer therapy, hormone therapy, stem cell Transplantation, surgical oncology, epigenetics, cancer genomics, cancer biomarkers, bio banking, non-invasive cancer diagnostics, organ specific cancers, cancer epidemiology and clinical trial in cancer research. Despite significant progress cancer still has one of the highest mortality rates with 14 million new cases and 8.2 million deaths in 2012 and this figure is expected to rise by approximately 70% in coming two decades worldwide as reported by the IARC-WHO. Also it is reported that in Europe alone 1,32,3600 cancer deaths are predicted by end of 2014. Currently the cancer market has reached $100 billion with 5% a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) annually in targeted therapy markets alone. However it has become clear that the global battle against cancer won’t be conquered with treatment alone and that effective prevention, measures and awareness. Bringing together 150 + experts from industry, research laboratories, hospitals, device and diagnostic manufacturers and academia in the arena of cancer research, the Cancer Therapy and Diagnosis Congress will provide an international platform to meet and network with experts from around the globe through scientific and industry oriented sessions, panel discussions, symposiums, workshops and vibrant exhibition area.

GCC Pharmaceutical Congress

Dubai, UAE

Description  

As pharmaceutical care moves to a more patient centered model it becomes extremely important to ensure an adequate and professional pharmacy practice. Pharmacists, in one hand, need to ensure maximum use of their skills by embarking on a culture of lifelong learning. On the other hand, it becomes evident that all members of the healthcare system need to co-operate to ensure planning, implementation and monitoring of a therapeutic plan that focuses on effective patient outcome. Therefore and following last year’s successful platform, the GCC Pharmaceutical Congress reinforces the importance of collaboration and dialogue between Policy Makers, Stakeholders, Regulators and Pharmaceutical experts. By sharing up-to-date information and highlighting key solutions with the ultimately purpose to drive forward the GCC Pharmaceutical sector. The Program will include presentations and interactive discussions that will cover key topics such as: Improving Pharmacy Manufacturing, Distribution and Practice; Reviewing Regulations and Compliance; Supporting Excellence by way of Continuous Education Programs and ensuring Medication Safety through the use of Technology and Innovation.
