It is a great pleasure to announce that the 6th International Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Symposium will be held in İstanbul, June 20-22, 2013. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is critical and endemic in Turkey and the rest of the Middle East. There are multiple completed and ongoing studies on NPC in Turkey. We will be hosting a series of speakers as well as oral and poster presentations as a part of the symposium. Among the subjects that will be discussed, genetic aspects, epidemiologic features, EBV association, treatment, and new therapeutic will be focused on in great detail.
İstanbul is a charming, vibrant city and was the capital of the three empires: the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, and the Ottoman Empire. While the city is the bridge between two continents, it is enriched by the views of the Bosphorus that cuts the city in the middle. Furthermore, the great historical background is yet witnessed to this day through the hundreds of churches, mosques, palaces, bazaars and other historical sites spread across the metropolitan city of 13 million.
We hope that you decide to attend this breakthrough symposium in Istanbul in 2013.
