Frontiers in cancer prevention research: Defeating cancer before it strikes

WHAT: To turn back cancer before it has a chance to take root and spread, scientists are increasingly turning their attention to new discoveries in cancer prevention. Leading experts from around the globe are gathering to share the latest research in this expanding and promising new field, with the hope this work will significantly reduce cancer incidence and mortality.

The future of cancer prevention relies heavily on:

  • identifying promising targets for drug development;
  • understanding how personal decisions are linked to cancer and identifying high-risk populations;
  • developing pre-clinical drug-testing models; and
  • tailoring prevention strategies to genetic profiles.
