The Environmental and Occupational Cancer Seminar

((This theme enjoys the scientific support of the Medical University of Karakalpakstan, Uzbekistan))

It is our pleasure to inform you that The International Environment and Occupation Cancer Seminar will be from November 21th to 23th, 2020. Since the foundation of APOCP in 2000, we have brought people together to promote cancer prevention and collaborative studies in the Asian Pacific regions. But now due to the spread of the corona virus and the inability to gather scientists and students in person, We have to hold this seminar virtually and in the form of a webinar.
We believe the The International Environment and Occupation Cancer Seminar will provide significant opportunities to exchange mutual information, ideas and achievements, and to facilitate continuous growth of activities on Environmental and Occupational cancer prevention and control in the World. On behalf of the organizing committee, we are honored to invite you to the virtual gathering.
We are sure that your participation will ensure an invaluable learning ground and will help us make a bigger step forward in reaching a milestone. The seminar will celebrate an important milestone for APOCP. The milestone that moves APOCP from a scientific association to an officially international cancer science organization.
The Environmental & Occupational Cancer Seminar will be held  on Nov. 21st, 22nd, and 23rd each day starting at 11:00 Tehran times and ending at 13:30

The Environmental and Occupational Cancer Seminar will cover the the following topics.

      1. Carcinogenicity mechanism
      2. CAREX and risk estimation
      3. Carcinogens in occupational  setting
      4. Climate change and cancer burden
