New Frontiers in Cancer Research — International Conference

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

On April 2, Soroka Medical Center will be hosting its first ever International Conference on Cancer to promote our Comprehensive Cancer Center, currently under development. At present there is no such center in the Negev, and cancer patients in this burgeoning region must often travel for hours to receive the care they need.

Entitled New Frontiers in Cancer Research, the conference is co-chaired by Dr. Larry Norton, the Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs and the Medical Director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and Professor David Geffen, M.D., Chief of Breast Oncology Services, Soroka University Medical Center

Highlights will include presenters from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Columbia University Medical Center, each of whom will focus on a different topic currently at the forefront of breast cancer research. The keynote speaker will be Larry Norton, who will discuss his recent findings relating leukocytes and breast cancer. He will be joined by Ken Offit, the Chief of Clinical Genetics Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering;Neil Iyengar, a Fellow in the Medical Oncology and Hematology Breast Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering; Robert Benezra, a cancer biologist and full Member at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and Ethel Siris, the Director of the Toni Stabile Osteoporosis Center of the Columbia University Medical Center, New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
