Celebrating progress in treating cancer; ahead of World cancer day, scientists at the forefront of cancer research, gathered in the Iranian capital to share their latest accomplishments in the 4th International Cancer Symposium held at Royan Research Institute, dubbed: From Bench to Bedside.
Results of the latest experiments on cancer cell therapy, was presented to an international audience of academic and private physicians and researchers.
On the sidelines of the conference, an exhibition of research-based therapeutic achievements was held, introducing advanced cellular treatments.
World Cancer Day aims to prevent millions of deaths each year by raising awareness and education about cancer, and pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action against the disease. But public funds are limited and therefore, financial assistance from charity organizations is indispensable.
Researchers taking part in this conference are saying regular donations allow them to fund new treatments that can help cancer patients. Therefore, one of the most important issues here is to find new ways to allocate charity funds to cancer research and treatment.
