Type of sessions

  • Keynote/plenary sessions
  • Oral Presentations
  • Symposia
  • Workshops
  • Poster sessions

Aim of conference:

  • To Promote prevention and control of cancer
  • To promote and enhance the advances in understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.
  • To spread of new knowledge about cancer
  • To Promote the exchange of information and collaboration of our cancer research
  • To bring researchers from different disciplines together to share their expertise, latest information to help promote greater understanding about cancer to ultimately help reduce the burden of cancer.

We believe these objectives can be achieved through disseminating workshops, symposiums and open discussion forums happening at our Thinkershub Cancer 2017 Conference.



Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and spread of cells. It can affect almost any part of the body. The growths often invade surrounding tissue and can metastasize to distant sites. Many cancers can be prevented by avoiding exposure to common risk factors, such as tobacco smoke. In addition, a significant proportion of cancers can be cured, by surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, especially if they are detected early.

Cancers figure among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with approximately 14 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer related deaths in 2012. The most common causes of cancer death are cancers of: lung cancer (1.59 million deaths), liver cancer (745 000 deaths), stomach cancer (723 000 deaths), colorectal cancer (694 000 deaths), breast cancer (521 000 deaths) and oesophageal cancer (400 000 deaths) The number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next 2 decades. Among men, the 5 most common sites of cancer diagnosed in 2012 were lung, prostate, colorectum, stomach, and liver cancer. Among women the 5 most common sites diagnosed were breast, colorectum, lung, cervix, and stomach cancer. Around one third of cancer deaths are due to the 5 leading behavioural and dietary risks: high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity, tobacco use, alcohol use.

Tobacco use is the most important risk factor for cancer causing around 20% of global cancer deaths and around 70% of global lung cancer deaths. Cancer causing viral infections such as HBV/HCV and HPV are responsible for up to 20% of cancer deaths in low- and middle-income countries. More than 60% of world’s total new annual cases occur in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. These regions account for 70% of the world’s cancer deaths. It is expected that annual cancer cases will rise from 14 million in 2012 to 22 within the next 2 decades.
