We are living in an exciting era where biomedical research in general and cancer research in particular has witnessed new and rapid development in particular as precision medicine started to advance further and new breakthroughs are reported almost on daily basis. This leap frogue development is due primarily to the recent advances in the Omics research area including genomics, proteomics and metabolomics. To join and contribute to the global Cancer research community, KAIMRC hosted during the last two days (May 24-25, 2016) an international conference dedicated to cancer research under the theme ” Trends in Cancer Research- from bench to bedside ” with the participation of a number of cancer researchers and clinical oncologists from KSA and from abroad. The presentations and discussions addressed a number of current and timely topics and challenges facing Cancer research locally and globally covering topics such as awareness, prevention, early diagnosis and treatment. A major emphasis was made around the areas of immunotherapy and precision medicine for Cancer.
Kaimrc has also made Cancer as a strategic R&D disease focus area and is developing an integrated research program to address this devastating disease.
