Skin cancer experts heading to Sydney in 2018 for World Congress on Cancers of the Skin
The congress will see 1500 delegates attend over four days, and include local experts joined by international researchers to discuss new drugs and therapies for curing skin cancers.
“Clothing is the best protection against potentially fatal skin cancers such as melanoma or basal-cell carcinoma, and it’s something we have seen in practice for some time in Australia. Our surf life savers have been wearing protective clothing for decades, so it’s good to see that the research and the rest of the world are finally catching up,” said Professor Alan Cooper from the Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney and a Business Events Sydney (BESydney) Ambassador.
Cooper is a world leader in the field of dermatology and worked with BESydney to secure WCCS 2018.
“The breakthroughs that will be announced and new collaborations that are sure to be ignited at the 2018 Sydney congress will change the lives of those affected by these indiscriminating cancers,” said Lyn Lewis-Smith, CEO of BESydney.
“The outcomes from this 2018 congress – from knowledge exchange, the sparking of new global research collaboration efforts and future investment opportunities – is core to why we bid for international conferences such as these.”
