Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are pleased to announce that the Philippines will be hosting the first international conference of the Asian Oncology Society on March 5-7, 2020 at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City.

The main focus of the Asian Oncology Society is to accelerate the translation of innovative discovery from the laboratory to clinical level, advance regional scientific multidisciplinary collaboration as well as exchange best practices regionally and globally.

The theme of the convention is "Cancer Prevention to Therapeutics: The Genomic Era''. We are developing a scientific program designed to stimulate interest in evolving cancer care. There will be plenary lectures by prestigious speakers, breakout sessions, abstract sessions and interactive masterclass workshops relevant to oncologists, physicians, researchers, students, trainees, nurses.

The conference shall be conducted under the auspices of the Asian Oncology Society and the Philippine Cancer Society as well as cooperating organizations such as the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology, Molecular Oncology Society and the Philippine Society of Oncologists.

Described as the Pearl of the Orient, the Philippines is a unique blend of diversity and homogeneity. Manila has been the heart and soul of the Philippines for four centuries and is the center of industrial development as well as an international port of entry situated in the Pacific region. It is a relevant location interconnecting different regional countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The convention center is within the central cultural and business district where commercial and pleasurable experiences intertwine with the convention's scientific discovery.

We look forward to your enthusiastic participation in this event. Join us not just for the stimulating exchange of ideas but to experience the beauty and diversity that the Philippine culture has to offer.

We wish for your safe journey to our country and look forward to seeing you in 2020!

Sincerely Yours,

Marie Cherry Lynn Samson Fernando,MD
