MACR Scientific Conference
WELCOME and Selamat Datang!

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st Malaysian Association for Cancer Research (MACR) Scientific Conference (1st MSC), which is held at MAHSA University, Bandar Saujana Putra, Selangor, Malaysia from 3rd – 4th December 2019.

‘Cancer Research in Malaysia: Is There a Need for a Paradigm Shift?’ is the theme of conference, highlighting quite importantly, the need for national cancer researchers and clinicians to foster collaboration, and examine the issues related to cancer research from all possible angles. Silos often exist unintentionally, but have been a real part of cancer research in Malaysia as there is no concerted effort to bring together various parties involved in cancer research in Malaysia. Hence, the needs for a paradigm shift to bridge the silos. 

One such effort would be to foster collaboration between scientists and clinicians. Another would be to bring together many cancer researchers in the various parts of the country that are working in isolation and in small groups to form firm alliances. Our multidisciplinary programme covers a wide spectrum of areas in cancer research, including but not limited to: Cancer Biology, Translational Cancer Medicine, Clinical Oncology, Prevention & Control of Cancer, and Cancer Drug Discovery. We strongly believe that 1stMSC is the best platform to address these issues and provide solutions to take Malaysian cancer research to a higher level.  

Besides improving our understanding of the biology of cancer to better detect and treat cancer, the team of expert speakers will also address some of the toughest challenges in cancer research from various perspectives. This is a platform for scientists and clinicians all over the world who are either working or interested in cancer-related fields to discuss common challenges and pragmatic solutions. The programme is structured to provide ample opportunity to interact with experts in the field and to network with fellow researchers to forge collaborative efforts, while the parallel sessions will equip you with valuable insights into building effective alliances across the various fields of research. 

The Scientific Committee has planned a thorough programme with plenary-, invited-, parallel lectures and poster sessions. The highlight of the conference will be the awards for the Best Oral and Poster Presenters. We will also be hosting a Rising Star session on the 3rd December 2019 to highlight the outstanding careers of young cancer researchers.

Looking forward to meeting you at this conference!
