Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are delighted to welcome you to the 20th Annual Shaukat Khanum Cancer Symposium, to be held from the 5th to the 7th of November 2021. In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, this has been converted into a virtual meeting. This is to ensure that participants continue to benefit from attending this leading regional cancer symposium while at the same time contributing to the exchange of ideas and information related to cancer care in these unprecedented times.

This meeting will provide a platform to diverse delegates, including leading researchers, scientists, practitioners and trainees from across the world to exchange knowledge and expertise related to cancer diagnosis, treatment and research.

This year’s symposium attracts participation of world-leading experts in their fields who will provide additional, exceptional value, to an already acclaimed learning platform. Our plenary speaker is Professor Azra Raza from Columbia University, New York, who is an international authority on myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute leukemia with over 300 peer-reviewed publications.

Our symposium organizing committee has worked tirelessly to ensure a successful virtual event. We look forward to an excellent meeting with renowned experts sharing specifics of their exciting, progressive research endeavors and radical, emerging updates in the field of oncology.
