The 20th International Charles Heidelberger Symposium on Cancer Research

Arica, Chile
October 8-11, 2014

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 20th International Charles Heidelberger Symposium on Cancer Research (20ICHSCR), which will be held in Arica, Chile, from October 8 to 11, 2014.

The Charles Heidelberger Symposia are broad cancer research meetings organized annually to honor the late Charles Heidelberger, former president of the American Association for Cancer Research, member of the National Academy of Sciences of the U.S.A., and an extraordinary scientist in the fields of carcinogenesis and cancer chemotherapy (he patented 5-fluorouracil (5FU), a drug that came to symbolize the promise chemotherapy of nonhematologic malignancies). The 20th edition of the Symposia will bring together scientists from around the world to present their achievements and discuss the most recent advances in cancer, from basic research to clinical applications.


We are looking forward to host you in Arica in October 2014 and to make 20ICHSCR a memorable scientific experience.
