Dear Honorable Members of the Korean Society of Cancer Prevention:
We are pleased to invite you to the 2021 International Conference on the 26th Annual Meeting of the Korean Society of Cancer Prevention (KSCP).
KSCP is aiming to emphasize the importance of cancer prevention as a universal approach to overcoming cancer through an in-depth study on the causes and treatments of cancer. As part of the effort to achieve this goal in 2021, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, KSCP held a symposium commemorating the “Day of Cancer Prevention” on Saturday, March 20, 2021, and the “2021 Osaek Symposium,” a proud KSCP event that has provided a venue for presenting research outcomes to the coming generations of academics, on Friday, July 9, at the College of Pharmacy, Seoul National University, as an e-conference. Although we could not physically attend the symposium at the same place, thanks to the proactive and dedicated contribution of all members, we were able to successfully hold the academic event in a safe manner even during the pandemic. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude once again.
We did hope to bring together as many participants as possible in a physical venue for the “2021 International Conference on the 26th Annual Meeting,” but, unfortunately, again due to social distancing measures following the severe COVID-19 situation, we would like to ask for your kind understanding that this event will be held as a hybrid conference.
This international conference titled “From Basic Research to Clinical Approach” will be held at the College of Pharmacy, Seoul National University, from Friday, November 26 to Saturday, November 27, 2021. As hosts of an international academic conference both in name and reality, we invite 31 distinguished speakers for six symposium sessions, including a young researchers' session, plenary lectures, keynote lectures, and special lectures, while hosting online poster presentations to provide an opportunity for participants to experience the latest trends in cancer prevention research and venues for active academic exchange. I give my sincere thanks to all speakers for their valuable time and contribution. Although it will be held in a hybrid format combining both online and in-person sessions, we will make this academic event as real and informative as possible.
Honorable members of the Korean Society of Cancer Prevention:
From early last year to this day, the COVID-19 pandemic has made our life difficult, but we do hope that it will come to an end soon.
Just as you showed unwavering interest and support for KSCP’s development, we would like to ask for your active participation and support for the success of the 2021 international conference and annual meeting.
Finally, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the sponsors and the executives of KSCP for their support in hosting the “2021 International Conference on the 26th Annual Meeting of the Korean Society of Cancer Prevention.”
Sang Kook Lee, Ph.D.
