Announcing Keynote Speakers

The Organizing Committee is proud and honored to announce our Keynote Speakers who’s contributions to basic science and clinical research are expediting advances in cancer research and therapy.

Charles Balch is a leading authority in both melanoma and breast cancer and the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Annals of Surgical Oncology, which is recognized as the leading journal in the world in its field. W.E. Moerner won the Nobel Prize for his role in developing a microscopy technique that allows scientists to visualize living cells at the molecular level. Sanjiv (Sam) Gambhir is an internationally recognized researcher in molecular imaging, his lab has focused on interrogating fundamental molecular events in living subjects. He has developed and clinically translated several multimodality molecular imaging strategies and pioneered imaging areas such as Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer (BRET), split-reporter technology, Raman imaging in vivo, Molecular Photoacoustic imaging, PET reporter genes, and novel in vitro and in vivo strategies for the early detection of cancer.
