Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committee, it is an honor and privilege to invite you to attend the “University of Chicago Oncology Conference for Adults and Pediatrics” being held hybrid on 17-18 February, at Grand Hyatt Hotel in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The conference is set to bring together the latest oncology research and knowledge during a comprehensive two-day Pediatrics & Adults program.

The event will feature state of the art advances in oncology treatment delivered through an expert panel of University of Chicago Medicine faculty and regional experts from the Gulf Region.

This conference will provide attendees with the ideal forum to learn and discuss the latest findings in treatment of cancer patients to improve the outcomes for patients with cancer, which is still one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.

It is a great opportunity for clinicians to know the current challenges and clinical development of new medical and surgical oncology treatment and the advances that have been made in science and clinical practice.

The number of distinguished speakers taking part in this conference emphasize the importance of establishing collaboration on a regional & international scale by promoting exchange of professional expertise around the globe.

The venue of the conference is in an area where Asia, Africa and Europe meet. This fosters the exchange of knowledge and ideas from all parts of the world.

As we believe the most significant driver for the future is the patient and staff, we hope this unique learning opportunity will help you gain passionate perspectives that will expand your knowledge and motivate you to improve and enhance the care you deliver to your patients.

Looking forward to welcoming you on the 17-18 February, 2023 in the beautiful city of Abu Dhabi.
