Warm greetings from Stem Cell Biology Laboratory, Department of Molecular Medicine & Cell and Molecular Biology Laboratory (CMBL), Central Research Facilities, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya!
The first-ever Stem Cell & Cancer Symposium (SCCS) 2018 will be held on the 17th - 18th October 2018 at University Malaya Alumni Clubhouse, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The symposium is envisaged to be a tangible platform for scientific communities from clinic, academia and industry to gather for an insightful exchange of latest, innovative and cutting-edge research updates in the field of stem cell and cancer research. Hence themed ''Exploring New Horizons in Cancer and Stem Cell Research'' to reflect the merging and interrogation of science underlying cancer, stem cell and ageing biology. This will pave a path in a better understanding of cancer and ageing-associated degenerative diseases and develop effective therapeutic strategies for the benefit of the humankind.
This 2-day symposium empowers the sharing of latest research findings not only by world-renowned experts but also our young talents through oral and poster presentations, thought-provoking “Junk the Jargon: StemCer in 180 seconds!” competition. Moving forward in these fields, a forum scheduled in the programme brings leading researchers, clinicians and entrepreneurs together to address some of the key challenges and evolving solutions to break the barriers within and between the fields of stem cell and cancer. As we gather together in this meeting, our trade exhibitors and sponsors play an integral role in providing the latest information on cutting-edge technologies and research solutions throughout this meeting.
