Conference Venue

Tata Memorial Centre is amongst the oldest and largest cancer centres in the world, with over 75 years of exceptional patient care, high-quality training and innovative cancer research. Over the years, it has grown in size and stature, maintaining its pre-eminent position at the forefront of national and global cancer control efforts.

Compassionate patient care remains the major focus of Tata Memorial Centre, with eleven Disease Management Groups (or multidisciplinary teams) breaking departmental silos and providing optimal care for every patient. This emphasis on team approach leverages the extensive experience and expertise of various specialists, thereby providing patients with evidence-based, yet individualized care, tailored not just to the cancer but also the patient’s unique physical, emotional and psychosocial needs.

Researchers at the Tata Memorial Centre are world leaders in basic, translational, epidemiologic and clinical cancer research. Research at TMC includes studies to understand cancer biology, large community based screening trials for common cancers and cohort studies, neoadjuvant and adjuvant treatment, perioperative interventions, surgical trials, repurposing drugs and qualitative research to understand the patient journey. Researchers at TMC focuses on impacting survival and quality of life i.e., living longer, or living better –endpoints that really matter to patients.

Training and education form a major focus area for TMC, which remains the most sought after institution for oncology training nationally. Combining a world-class academic faculty and being amongst the highest volume cancer centres in the world, we take special pride that our alumni now provide specialist oncology care and hold leadership positions in several cancer centres in the country and internationally.
