ispcm 2019


It is our pleasure to announce that the Third Annual Meeting of the International Society of Precision Cancer Medicine (ISPCM) will be held in Seoul, Korea, in 12-15th of March, 2019.

The first International Conference for Precision Cancer Medicine (ICPCM), which was held in 29th-30th June, 2017 in Tokyo, Japan, is actually the ancestor meeting of the ISPCM. Our old friend, Johji Inazawa, a professor of Medical Research Institute, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, organized and lead the first ICPCM to a great success. Following the first ICPCM, we decided to launch ISPCM with this wonderful group of cancer researchers in order to meet the urgent needs of the times of individualized cancer prevention and therapy.

The Second Annual Meeting of ISPCM was held in 15th-19th March, 2018, Busan, Korea. Yong Sang Song organized and lead this meeting to a great success. More than 70 excellent researchers in the field of cancer science from 15 countries participated in the conference. Yong Sang Song was elected as the first president of the ISPCM.

No one can deny the fact that we are poised to enter a new era of precision cancer medicine not only in the field of treatment but also diagnosis and prevention. This is absolutely a paradigm shift for cancer research as well as practice. Based on the accumulated knowledge so far, ISPCM will contribute to build a comprehensive knowledge network for biomedical research by incorporating genetic, biochemical, immunologic, and environmental data. This network will help to define molecular subtypes of one's cancer and a new taxonomy of cancer which can lead us to effective approaches for cancer cure.

Seoul is the capital and the largest city of Korea. The population of Seoul is over 10 million, and Seoul is the central city of culture, industry and technology in Korea.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Third annual meeting of the ISPCM in Seoul , Korea.
