Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the International Society of Oncology and Biomarkers, I am pleased to invite you to participate actively in the 44th ISOBM Congress, to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from September 7 to 10, 2017.

With the theme "Biomarkers in oncology: new horizons and challenges in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer", the Congress will bring together different fields of basic research in oncology and daily practice in the care of cancer patients. With the aim of bringing new findings to clinical practice, this Congress will be a great opportunity to improve the clinical results of cancer patients through the rational use of biomarkers. Participants will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and expertise in an international forum, meet with professionals and colleagues from around the world, and attend lectures delivered by prominent leaders in the fields of Cancer Research, Oncology, and Biomarkers. The presence of a wide range of commercial exhibitors, showing all their products and services directed to oncology, adds an additional value to the event, enabling a profitable exchange between different suppliers and users.

In addition to the stimulating scientific program of the Congress, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy the Marvelous City, as the city of Rio de Janeiro is known worldwide. Corcovado Mountain and Christ the Redeemer Statue, Morro da Urca, Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon beaches, Museo of Tomorrow, are just some of the many social and cultural attractions that Rio will offer us.

You will surely have a good time!

I look forward to meeting you at this unique event.
