The Israeli Society for Cancer Research was formed in order to bring together cancer scientists from the Israeli academia, hospitals, governmental institutes and the private sector. The main purpose of the ISCR is to foster interactions among Israeli cancer researchers, create a platform for collaborations between cancer researchers and clinicians who treat cancer patients, and encourage international collaborations.
Such national and international interactions will advance the prevention and treatment of cancer on the basis of world class scientific research.
Since its inception, the ISCR has enjoyed the encouragement of the Israel Cancer Association.
To foster sharing of knowledge and collaborations in Israel and abroad, we organize annual meetings where the latest discoveries and advancements in cancer research are presented by both basic and clinical cancer scientists and physicians. These meetings xpose students and fellows to the research performed by leading laboratories, and give junior scientists an opportunity to gain experience in presenting their own research.
