5th International Congress On Nutrition And Cancer

5th International Congress On Nutrition And Cancer September 9-11, 2012

On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to extend a warm invitation to all interested in the field of cancer and nutrition to attend the Fifth International Congress on Nutrition and Cancer to be held in Elazig,Turkey on September 9-11, 2012.

We will have a program packed with outstanding lectures, including keynote talks, plenary sessions, oral presentations and poster discussions. In addition, social programs will be planned for the evenings. There will also be pre- and post-meeting trips to popular tourist destinations such as Mount Nemrut, Kapadokya (Cappadocia), Efes (Ephesus), Bodrum (Halicarnassus), Ankara and Istanbul.

The program will include presentations by leading basic, clinical, and epidemiologic scientists on the latest discoveries in their areas. Attendance at this conference will be an ef ficient way to keep current in a rapidly changing field. Exciting sessions will be devoted to oxidative stress and inflammation; nutrition, physical activity, and obesity; nutrigenomics; epigenetics; chemoprevention. Sessions will integrate the key disciplines of clinical, behavioral, animal model, and epidemiologic research.

The meeting location, Elazig is the most orderly city of the Eastern Anatolian region, due to its being recently founded with the name of Mamurat-ül Aziz in the 19th century by sultan Abdülaziz to settle some over-population from the Harput town. But it is known that the city has a much older history dating back to ancient civilizations of Anatolia; Hurris, Hittites, Urartus, Byzantines, Seljuks and Ottomans..

We look forward to seeing you in Elazig for this outstanding conference.

Sincerely,

Organizing Committee
