On behalf of the entire organizing committee, I welcome you to attend the conference and enjoy our hospitality. This will also be an occasion to feel the splendour and grandeur of Kerala and especially Kochi. We have arranged a strong programme highlighting both scientific and clinical aspects of cancer research. In addition to eminent scientists and clinicians from India, we have invited experts from abroad to join us in the conference. Please encourage your graduate students and post doctoral fellows to submit abstracts for the meeting as soon as possible. The corporate section which supports research in the form of equipment and consumables will also be present during the meeting.
