CANSA Research in Action Conference July 2015

Registration is now CLOSED as we have reached full capacity.   – CANSA and Stellenbosch University (incorporating the African Cancer Institute) are pleased to announce that the CANSA Research in Action Conference will be held from 14 to 16 July 2015. CANSA aims to bring together the SA cancer research community spanning the research spectrum from epidemiology, early diagnosis of cancer, reducing cancer risk, services for cancer patients and survivors as well as research relating to cancer biology/biochemistry/molecular biology to policy research.

Cancer Association of SA (CANSA)  |  Stellenbosch University [incorporating  African Cancer Institute (ACI)]

The STIAS (Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study) is modelled on the 83-year old Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton NJ where Albert Einstein, Freeman Dyson and Kurt Godel, amongst many others, produced brilliant intellectual contributions. We are anticipating that the Cancer Research Conference at STIAS will be the place where intellectual “sparks” can and will ignite. We see this as an incubator for South African cancer research.
