Dear Colleagues and Friends:

On behalf of the Spanish Association for Cancer Research (ASEICA), it is my honour and pleasure to invite you to the 13th National Conference of our association which will be held in Salamanca, from 21th to 23th of September 2011.

As you may be aware, our scientific society was founded in 1983 with the goal of creating the conditions in Spain for the development of quality cancer research and to serve as a forum for scientists interested in the subject, with the object of creating the necessary environment, through its critical mass of members, to respond to the current demands of society with respect to cancer.

Since then ASEICA has worked to achieve these objectives developing numerous activities, the most important being the organisation of a conference every two years.

The scientific programme for the 13th National Conference has at its core the presentation of abstracts, but also includes numerous excellent conferences and symposia on the most important aspects of basic, clinical and traslational research in the field of oncology.

The National Conference intends to be a forum for debate and a meeting place for all professionals of the different fields of cancer research, bringing together to this end, noted experts in a variety of areas.

It is my desire and hope that the attached programme is of interest to you and to your liking, and that your attendance and participation at the conference will contribute to its success and brilliance.

I hope to welcome you personally at the Salamanca Congress Palace, where the conference shall be held.

My kindest regards,

Dr. Eugenio Santos
Presidente del Comité Organizador
