Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the local organizing committee, we welcome you to participate in the 8th Biennial Canadian Conference on Ovarian Cancer Research taking place at the Hilton Fallsview from May 15-17, 2016 in stunning Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

This conference will converge basic, translational, and clinical research in ovarian cancer in a collegial environment to foster collaborations and improved understanding of this complex disease. The conference is open worldwide to all researchers and clinicians working, or interested, in ovarian cancer. We particularly welcome trainees and will host a trainee day workshop, to be held on Saturday May 14, 2016.

With this conference, we continue in the tradition of the conference series that started with the first Canadian Conference on Ovarian Cancer Research held in Ottawa in 2002. Since that time, there have been substantial discoveries and an evolution in our understanding of ovarian cancer—alternative origins, genomic instability, histotype-specific gene mutations, tumour heterogeneity and emerging therapies. As in previous conferences, we are developing a rigorous scientific program that introduces innovative ideas and highlights key nascent findings in ovarian cancer research.

In addition to a full scientific program of research symposia and poster sessions, the conference will be preceded by the highly-praised full-day trainee workshop that offers a unique opportunity for our young researchers to interact and learn the basics of this disease from faculty experts across Canada. In addition, a survivors workshop supported by Ovarian Cancer Canada takes place concurrently with the first day of the conference, providing a unique learning and supportive environment for survivors, family members, friends and caregivers.

Niagara Falls is a spectacular global landmark and the Hilton Fallsview is uniquely situated to maximize visitors’ enjoyment of the area with stunning views of the Falls. The distinctive location of this conference together with its stimulating scientific program promises to create an exceptional global nexus of ovarian cancer research dissemination.

We hope you and your colleagues will join us for this exciting conference!
