Welcome Message

Written by Emma De Angelis. Posted in Uncategorised

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to welcome you to join the 7th biennial Canadian Conference on Ovarian Cancer Research (CCOCR).  

This conference will build upon the tremendous momentum generated by previous meetings of this group in Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto and Quebec City, each of which has been designed to further the vision of our initial Conference Chair Dr. Barbara Vanderhyden, of an integrated and multidisciplinary ovarian cancer research community within Canada.

Our meeting features renowned Canadian and International researchers who will present their findings in symposia focused on the origins of ovarian cancer, disease subtypes, molecular genetics, tumor evolution, microenvironment and tumor immunity. Additional oral and poster presentations on these themes will be selected from the submitted abstracts. The main conference will be preceded by an interactive one-day workshop for trainees.

Following the tradition of the previous meetings, this national conference represents an excellent opportunity for the dissemination, discussion and debate of the new medical and scientific information for ovarian cancer treatment and care. We hope that you will have the chance to present your own data, network, find new collaborators and witness the capacity-building of our growing community by inspiring graduate students and other learners to pursue their professional goals as researchers in ovarian cancer! 

We thank you very much for your participation in CCOCR 2014 and wish you a very warm welcome to BC’s capital city Victoria on beautiful Vancouver Island!
