Welcome to the IUBMB Advanced School 2018 ‘Frontiers in Infection-Associated Cancer’ to be held on June 17 – 20, 2018. It is my great pleasure to invite you to Bangkok, Thailand. For the meeting, distinguished speakers have been invited from many countries around the world, and will describe their recent findings on the topics of infection-associated cancer including cancer omics, targeted therapies, liquid biopsies, cancer prevention, cancer diagnostics. I am confident that these cutting-edge topics from our invited speakers will be of interest to all participants and will surely be accompanied by fruitful discussion to open doors to a new era of personalized cancer medicine.
The IUBMB Advanced School 2018 also provides a platform for young scientists to build up joint networks, and share materials and current knowledge among the participants. The training and experiences through the IUBMB Advanced School 2018 will have significant impacts on cross fertilization of ideas, the development of new research topics and hopefully additional international collaboration.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I sincerely hope that the IUBMB Advanced School 2018 will contribute to making great progress in the field of infection-associated cancer research. We look forward to personally welcoming you to Bangkok from all parts of the world.
