QU-HEALTH in collaboration with Qatar Cancer Society and the Middle Eastern Association for Cancer Research (MEACR), organized the tenth annual meeting of the Middle Eastern association for cancer research, under the title “Cancer science from bench to clinic”, virtually through WebEx with 114 attendees.
The conference was attended Professor Egon Toft, Vice President for Medical and Health Sciences, in addition to a large number of cancer scientists, researchers, physicians, and all those interested in cancer research, including graduate students, and public health practitioners in Qatar and abroad.
The conference aims to exchange experiences and the latest findings of experts in this field, spread knowledge, and encourage scientific cooperation between various universities and scientific institutions in the Middle East. The conference attracted the most prominent doctors, researchers and academics, with the aim of providing a rich program of educational sessions and lectures centered on cancer research and modern methods of treatment.
Qatar Cancer Society has based its work on achieving the vision of the state to invest in human resources, as the presence of physically and psychologically healthy individuals requires concerted efforts to achieve goals that no one side alone can achieve in isolation from other parties, he added.
“It is impossible not to feel humbled when addressing any cancer research community, a group of inspired and inspiring individuals who devote their lives to finding solutions for one of the world’s most devastating diseases. I am doubly humbled to address members of this meeting, because I know your task is twice as difficult, given the challenges facing research in a region that is already struggling with economic, political, security, educational and other challenges. Yet I am proud that we at QU Health were again able to make this small contribution towards encouraging you to share your ideas, and accelerate progress against cancer in the region and beyond.” Prof. Egon Toft, Vice President of Medical and Health Sciences office and Dean of the College of Medicine.
“As our determination to foster cancer research in the region, aligns perfectly with the objectives of Qatar University, Qatar cancer society and Qatar’s national health strategy, we see in this collaboration a perfect partnership that helps nurture such a scientific endeavor in the region and we hope to continue to build on this mutual interest and create ever-evolving synergies that will serve both cancer research and cancer patient care in the region and beyond”. Dr. Ala-Eddin Al Moustafa, founder, Middle Eastern Association for Cancer Research, professor, College of Medicine.
The Middle Eastern Association for Cancer Research was created and officially registered in December 2009 in Montreal, Canada. The main objectives of the MEACR are to encourage the collaboration between cancer scientists all over the world.
