Distinguished Speakers to Share Latest Research and Key Findings at LabRoots’ 7th Annual Cancer Research & Oncology Virtual Event

The agenda brings the best backgrounds together for 2 days of high-quality discussions with the goal of advancing Cancer Research and Therapy

LabRoots, the leading scientific social networking website offering premier, interactive virtual events and webinars, today announced the speaker lineup for its 7th Annual Cancer Research & Oncology Event, hosted on October 9-10, 2019. Current developments, novel therapeutic approaches and reporting new methods on basic and clinical aspects of cancer research will be significantly explored for early detection and prevention of cancer.

The world has seen substantial advances in cancer research and breakthrough innovation representing progress to diagnose and treat patients. Relevant experts, academia and industry, leading physicians, oncologists, research scholars, and healthcare professionals will be under one roof to exchange knowledge on topics including, Tumor Drug Resistance and Tumor Evolution, Health Disparities in Cancer, and Molecular Guidance versus Standard of Care.

Highlighting new conceptual and technological advances in the field, various presentations delivered by well-renowned leaders will summarize multi-level interventions in cancer prevention and control addressing prostate cancer disparities, next steps in personalized medicine using genomics and imaging for treatment selection in early stage prostate cancer, surgical options for newly diagnosed ovarian cancer, precision oncology – biomarkers for treatment selection in metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer, how MIBI technology is used in cancer research, and the complexity behind the response of the most common bone tumor in pediatric/young adults to immunotherapy for therapeutic intervention in metastatic disease, and much more!

The conference organizers identified two outstanding keynote speakers reflecting the breadth of the field: 

  • Ernesto Diaz-Flores, PhD, Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Department of Pediatrics/Hematology at University of California, San Francisco and experienced biochemist who specializes in identifying pioneering therapies for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia will present an abstract titled “Pairing protein profiling with drug screens uncovers an effective therapy again high-risk leukemia.”
  • Ernest Hawk, MD, MPH, Vice President and Division Head for Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences, at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and holds the Boone Pickens Distinguished Chair for Early Prevention of Cancer, will present an abstract titled “Cancer Prevention for the practicing oncologist – recommendations for cancer patients and their families.”

Ernesto Diaz-Flores, Assistant Adjunct Professor, Department of Pediatrics/Hematology at University of California, San Francisco said, “Childhood leukemia continues to be one of the leading causes of childhood mortality, mainly due to particular subtypes of leukemia with high risk of relapse. My research focuses on identifying novel therapies, and my keynote delivery will highlight a promising preclinical study on hypodiploid acute leukemia. LabRoots represents a wonderful platform to showcase our latest advances in pre-clinical work for one of the most aggressive types of leukemia,” added Diaz-Flores.

“Through its 7-year tenure, our Cancer Research & Oncology conference continues to inspire health awareness and promote revolutionary research on a global front,” said Tracy Salcido, Vice President of LabRoots. “We’re excited to produce such an informative and enlightening environment year after year to further the fight in battling this deadly disease.”
