Dear Colleague,

We are happy to announce that Jaipur will be organizing the next Annual conference of ISMPO (Indian Society of Medical & Paediatric Oncology) – ISMPOCON 2018 from November 16 to 18, 2018.

With immense pleasure, we would like to invite you for this conference at Jaipur – The Pink City of India.
The Theme of the conference is "CONQUERING CANCER – CURRENT CONCEPTS"

There have been major advances in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers, especially in the past few years. We have moved from imprecise diagnosis based on just histo-pathology to refined and precise diagnosis with the help of immue and genetic markers. On the treatment front we have graduated from blunderbuss chemotherapy to precision medicine, targeted therapy and personalised treatment. We have devised ways and means to use the body’s own immune system to fight against the cancer and immune-oncology has emerged as an entirely new field with lots of promise. We now have the capability to modify the patients T cells in-vitro and reprogram them to recognise and kill cancer cells. It will not be an exaggeration to suggest that Cancer is on the verge of being conquered. For these reasons, we have chosen this theme for the 2018 ISMPO conference – Conquering Cancer: Current Concepts. We hope that we will be able to add to your knowledge of these new & current concepts during this meeting.

We look forward to welcome you to Jaipur for this academic feast which will certainly enhance your knowledge of oncology but also provide you an opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones. We will try our very best to make you comfortable and to ensure that you enjoy the traditional hospitality of Rajasthan & the Pink City – "Padharoo Mahare Desh"!!

About Jaipur

Explore the city

Jaipur is the capital of India’s Rajasthan state. It evokes the royal family that once ruled the region and that, in 1727, founded what is now called the Old City, or “Pink City” for its trademark building color. At the center of its stately street grid (notable in India) stands the opulent, colonnaded City Palace complex. With gardens, courtyards and museums, part of it is still a royal residence.
