The four-day ‘Horizons of Cancer Biology and Therapy’ event will welcome 500 delegates from around the world to the University Hospital Campus of the Swiss Cancer Centre Lausanne (SCCL). It will provide a platform for cancer scientists to discuss the hallmarks of cancer, with a focus on tumour immunology and mechanism-guided therapies.

Lausanne Tourism & Convention Bureau will support the conference by providing a number of operational services including the management of accommodation for the symposium.

Gérald Howard, business development manager at Lausanne Convention Bureau, said: "We are delighted to be hosting the 2016 ISREC-SCCL Inaugural Symposium. The Swiss Cancer Centre offers the perfect context and infrastructure for the event and we hope that all the delegates enjoy the hospitality and cultural attractions of the city during their visit."
