“Welcome to the third HMRI Cancer Conference. This biennial meeting has fast become an integral event of the HMRI Cancer Research Program. The rapid pace of discovery in diagnostics, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, proteomics, biomarkers, and stem cell function, and their role in the development of tailored cancer therapies makes this a meeting you can't afford to miss!!! We look forward to welcoming you to Newcastle in September 2008”.
