|Oral Oncology Congress to visit Greece|
|Friday, 08 March 2013|
The International Academy of Oral Oncology is to host its Congress in Rhodes in May 2013.
The IAOO has made significant strides with expanding membership and attracting specialists from all parts of the world who are interested in oral cancers. The tremendous successes of the previous three world congresses (Amsterdam in 2007, Toronto in 2009, and Singapore in 2011) are a testament to the need for an assembly of oral oncologists from all sub-specialties.
Now, after being held in three continents during the last decade, the IAOO Congress is due to come to the beautiful island of Rhodes in Greece. The capital of Dodecanese Islands, Rhodes is one of the most enchanting parts of Greece with 3,000 years of history, culture and civilisation.
This Fourth World Congress will be informative, interesting and rewarding. The main theme of the Congress is ‘From genes to clinical care’, aiming to emphasise the interface, blending, and interaction between basic science, prevention, targeted therapies, and current and future clinical practice.
The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is supporting this Congress, which will also host the King James IV Professorship Oration by Hong Kong’s Professor Lakshman P. Samaranayake on ‘Oral Candida in Health and Disease’.
Organised and chaired by the IAOO Vice-President Professor Alexis Rapidis (Athens), with the advantages of his excellent local knowledge and administrative team skills, there will also be opportunities to participate in local cultural activities.
