Conferences and events

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

Every year we aim to attend conferences throughout Asia to present our research on the links between diet, weight, physical activity and cancer prevention and survival. We are currently planning which conferences we will be attending in 2020.
