Innovative and Low-cost Cancer-related Technologies. 

The Symposium is an annual event, since 2013, that aims to promote the exchange of scientific findings, best practices, and innovations in global cancer research. In addition, Symposium participants work to identify potential geographic and scientific areas for collaboration and to develop strategic priorities related to cancer research focused on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Highly interactive discussions will cover a range of topics, foster network building, and be geared toward developing action items for advancing global cancer research priorities.

The Symposium consistently draws quality senior- and junior-level professionals from multiple sectors, including academia, industry, and non-governmental organizations, providing a valuable combination of experience, enthusiasm and varied perspectives to the discussions.

Abstracts submission is open until January 18, 2016

Abstracts are accepted in three categories: 
(1) original research conducted in LMICs;
(2) program development in LMICs; and 
(3) development of novel devices or technologies used in low-cost cancer control
