About the event
Welcome to the Conference on Recent Cancer Treatments, Integrative Oncology, Prevention, Diet Protocols, and Psychological Trauma Management. We gather here today to explore the multidimensional aspects of cancer care, addressing not only the physical challenges but also the profound psychological impact that cancer imposes on individuals and their loved ones.
Recent years have witnessed remarkable advancements in cancer treatments, revolutionizing the way we approach this formidable disease. From targeted therapies to immunotherapies and precision medicine, these breakthroughs have significantly improved patient outcomes and survival rates. In this conference, we will delve into the latest developments in cancer treatment modalities, examining their efficacy, safety, and potential for personalized approaches. By staying at the forefront of these advancements, we can collectively enhance our ability to combat cancer and improve the lives of those affected.
Integrative oncology, an essential discipline in cancer care, recognizes the need for a holistic approach that encompasses not only medical interventions but also complementary therapies to support the well-being of patients. By integrating evidence-based complementary practices with conventional treatments, integrative oncology strives to optimize patient outcomes, enhance quality of life, and address the multifaceted challenges that cancer presents. This conference will serve as a platform to explore the synergies between conventional and complementary approaches, highlighting their potential to provide comprehensive and patient-centered care.
Cancer prevention, an integral component of our fight against this disease, plays a pivotal role in reducing its global burden. By adopting preventive measures and early detection strategies, we can significantly decrease the incidence and impact of cancer. This conference will provide a forum to discuss the latest advancements in cancer prevention, emphasizing the importance of personalized approaches and the impact of lifestyle factors, including diet and nutrition, on reducing cancer risks. By collectively promoting awareness and implementing effective preventive strategies, we can make substantial strides in reducing the burden of cancer worldwide.
In addition to the physical challenges, cancer often inflicts profound psychological trauma on patients, survivors, and their families. The emotional and psychological toll of a cancer diagnosis and treatment journey cannot be understated. Recognizing the significance of addressing psychological trauma, this conference will dedicate sessions to exploring innovative approaches and evidence-based interventions aimed at providing emotional support, coping mechanisms, and post-traumatic growth to those affected by cancer. By fostering an inclusive dialogue, we aim to enhance our understanding of the psychological dimensions of cancer care and develop comprehensive strategies to support individuals in their healing process.
Together, let us seize this opportunity to foster collaboration, knowledge exchange, and collective action in the global fight against cancer and its psychological aftermath. We invite you to engage in thought-provoking discussions, participate in dynamic workshops, and forge meaningful connections with fellow researchers, healthcare professionals, and mental health experts. By synergizing our efforts and sharing our expertise, we can drive innovation, improve patient outcomes, and provide comprehensive care that encompasses the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of individuals affected by cancer.
Welcome to the nutrimedicine Conference on Recent Cancer Treatments, Integrative Oncology, Prevention, Diet Protocols, and Psychological Trauma Management. Let us join forces to advance the frontiers of cancer care and empower individuals to heal not only their bodies but also their minds. Together, we can make a lasting impact in the lives of those affected by cancer and inspire hope for a brighter future.

About the speakers :
Dr. Peter H kay
I was born in the UK and in the early part of my scientific career, I specialised in blood group serology and haematology. In 1974, I moved to Australia to establish a kidney transplant unit at the Royal Perth Hospital in Western Australia. I later became a member of the Department of Pathology at the University of Western Australia, specialising in Immunopathology. In the late 1980s, I was awarded my PhD in immunogenetics. In 1989, I founded the first Molecular Pathology laboratory in Western Australia in the Faculty of Dentistry and Medicine at the University of Western Australia.
I remained as Head of the Molecular Pathology laboratory until I retired from Academia in 2001. During that time, I conducted world-class research into tissue regeneration, genetics and epigenetics (especially with respect to DNA methylation), cancer biology and molecular genetic aspects of cancer diagnosis.
I have supervised well over 20 PhD students and helped launch their scientific careers in many areas of clinico-pathological research. As part of my supervisory role, I always taught my PhD students the importance of scientific ethics and explained their responsibilities as future senior scientists. For example, I taught them how important it is to properly acknowledge the intellectual contributions of others. I also gave students the confidence to develop original thought processes and critically assess the validity of information.
Because of the scientific quality and originality of our work, I and my PhD candidates are proud to have published 93 papers in world-class scientific journals.
In recognition of the fact that I had become skilful in distinguishing between bad science and good science, I was invited by the National Health and Medical Research Councils of Australia and New Zealand as a senior peer reviewer to assess the suitability and validity of new scientific research and many grant applications for funding, especially in the area of oncology. I undertook these assessments over many years.
