The Canadian Cancer Research Conference (CCRC) attracts researchers from all across Canada. The CCRC 2017 scheduled between November 5-7 will see a plethora of discoveries from researchers. CCRC is the only national platform where the entire field of Cancer is displayed so extensively.
“The CCRC provides an opportunity for cancer researchers to learn about novel ideas, tools and approaches, liaise with patients, inspire new investigators and trainees, and continue to make progress in our efforts to understand the inherent complexities of cancer” states Dr. David Huntsman who works as Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynaecology at The University of British Columbia as well as staff pathologist at the BC Cancer Agency.
The CCRC will take place at the Vancouver Convention Center and is hosted by the Canadian Cancer Research Alliance. This event has materialized with the support of a number of reputed organizations including several cancer research funders.
This program was initiated by three renowned scientists of cancer including Drs. Gerald Batist at Segal Cancer Centre and McGill University, Shoukat Dedhar of BC Cancer Agency and The University of British Columbia and Christine Friedenreich of Alberta Health Services and The University of Calgary.
Over the course of the three days, CCRA 2017 will see several important topics being discussed by a gamut of highly reputed professionals from Canada as well as abroad. Describing research as the only way to “decrease the death and suffering from cancer”, Huntsman further established the importance of CCRC in Cancer mitigation advancements by allowing “cancer researchers to learn”.
The ‘Celebration of Science’ lecture is scheduled on November 6, between 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm, unveiling the scientific achievements of Dr. Connie Eaves, a renowned scientist who will be seen discussing her personal journey in cancer stem cell biology as well the evolvement of our understanding of cancer research over the past years.
