Abstract

The most successful and productive approach to defeat cancer relies on highly integrated and interchanging cooperation between basic research, diagnosis, and therapeutic innovation. Nevertheless, much remains to be done to achieve a consistent and continuous flow of theoretical and practical information among scientists actively involved in these equally relevant fields. The major objective of the International Conferences, 'New Dimensions in Cancer Biology and Therapy,' has been identified in gathering together basic scientists and clinicians who represent scientific leaders in their field, whose working efforts are focused on specific human malignancies. Thus, in pursuit of this well-defined goal, the third edition of the Conference has focused on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and cancer, cutaneous melanoma, and colorectal carcinoma, which are ideal clinical examples for innovative diagnostic and therapeutic intervention, as well as optimal models to unveil new mechanisms of tumor pathogenesis.
