LabRoots, the leading scientific social networking website offering premier, interactive virtual events and webinars, today announced its Cancer Research & Oncology conference, to be held on October 7th and 8th. Proudly marking its 8th year providing a forum of in-depth collaboration and education for a broad spectrum of leading oncologists and physicians, top scientists, academic researchers, and industry and healthcare experts, this online event brings a united front on a global basis to accelerate progress in the fight against cancer.

This 2-day agenda promises to highlight innovative discoveries in basic, translational and clinical cancer research creating a comprehensive, unique scientific program for all participants. New research will be featured on topics including, the role of evolution in drug and radiation resistance of cancer, the latest in immunotherapy and other novel cancer therapeutics, health disparities: how cancer impacts the underrepresented and underserved, molecular and genetic guidance versus standard of care, and new methods to understand cancer biology.

A stellar lineup of distinguished presenters via scheduled and on-demand discussions span a variety of approaches and disciplines such as, oncogene additivity in the PI3K pathway in cancer, first-line therapies for patients with metastatic clear cell renal carcinoma and prostate adenocarcinoma, the biology of cancer disparities: an innate immunity story, hereditary cancer genetics, transcriptome analysis of breast cancer clinical specimens with long-read sequencer, key benefits to having a multiplexing ddPCR system, high-throughput biomarker profiling in immunocology research and development, and much more.

On day one, a keynote presentation kicks off the event on ‘Robotic Radical Prostatectomy: Lessons Learned from 14,000 Cases’ delivered by Dr. Vipul Patel, Medical Director, AdventHealth Global Robotics Institute, Medical Director, AdventHealth Cancer Institute Urologic Oncology Program, Professor of Urology, University of Central Florida, sharing key outcome metrics for RALP. Patel is well-renowned for his contribution to the field of robotic surgery and prostate cancer, and the most experienced robotic surgeon in the world.
