Thinkershub invites all the Participants from around the globe to attend the "World Cancer Research Conference" (Thinkershub Cancer 2017)will take in London and organised by Thinkershub organisation during October 23-25 2017, London, United Kingdom.
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth and spread of cells. It can affect almost any part of the body. The growths often invade surrounding tissue and can metastasize to distant sites. Many cancers can be prevented by avoiding exposure to common risk factors, such as tobacco smoke. In addition, a significant proportion of cancers can be cured, by surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, especially if they are detected early.
Cancers figure among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with approximately 14 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer related deaths in 2012. The most common causes of cancer death are cancers of: lung cancer (1.59 million deaths), liver cancer (745 000 deaths), stomach cancer (723 000 deaths), colorectal cancer (694 000 deaths), breast cancer (521 000 deaths) and oesophageal cancer (400 000 deaths) The number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next 2 decades. Among men, the 5 most common sites of cancer diagnosed in 2012 were lung, prostate, colorectum, stomach, and liver cancer. Among women the 5 most common sites diagnosed were breast, colorectum, lung, cervix, and stomach cancer. Around one third of cancer deaths are due to the 5 leading behavioural and dietary risks: high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity, tobacco use, alcohol use.
Tobacco use is the most important risk factor for cancer causing around 20% of global cancer deaths and around 70% of global lung cancer deaths. Cancer causing viral infections such as HBV/HCV and HPV are responsible for up to 20% of cancer deaths in low- and middle-income countries. More than 60% of world’s total new annual cases occur in Africa, Asia and Central and South America. These regions account for 70% of the world’s cancer deaths. It is expected that annual cancer cases will rise from 14 million in 2012 to 22 within the next 2 decades.
In this digital age, conferences and face-to-face meeting are increasingly being substituted by webinars, video conferences and other forms of digital communication. There are some clear advantages with digital communication such as convenience, cost and time savings. Despite these advantages, the impact of communicating in person is much higher and is backed by scientific evidence. According to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience, during face-to-face communication, synchronization of brain activity between partners occur leading to successful exchange of information. Besides, frequent eye-contact during face-to-face communication helps build trust between individuals and produce better outcomes such as increased creativity and productivity. Hence, conferences and meetings are necessary even in a world dominated by digital communication channels.
ThinkersHub facilitate these face-to-face interactions between scientists, technologists and other innovators around the world through THconferences. It covers a wide range of topics – from renewable energy to cancer – and aim to identify knowledge gaps in specific research areas. Sessions formats include keynote lectures, oral presentations, symposia, workshops and poster presentations. Besides, THconferences will serve as a platform for young researchers from around the world to showcase their work and for professional development through workshops and discussion forums.
London: Global Knowledge Hub as Venue for our conferences
London is a centre for academic excellence. London is the second most visited city in the world. International students come from over 200 different nations, making London a global, vibrant and diverse city. Over 70 Nobel Prize laureates have studied or worked at London universities. There are over 45 universities in London, including top multi-faculty universities and world-class specialist institutions. Universities in London have a combined research income of over £500 million ($820 million).
Thinkershub wants to make meetings as sustainable as possible. This conference centre has a Responsible Business programme and has been awarded Gold accreditation by the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS) for its efforts in environmental practice and responsible business.
