Conferences and events

Every day, around the world, new research is carried out which increases our understanding of the link between diet, weight, physical activity and cancer

Every year we attend conferences throughout Asia to present our research on the link between diet, weight, physical activity and cancer prevention and survival. You can browse our presentations from previous conferences around the world.
