Even though the main subject of the online medical journal is oncology, there are other fields that Oncoarget publishes studies bout. Those include Immunology, Pathology, Aging Chromosomes, and a handful of other areas. The online medical journal has been looking to expand its scope in order to use its reach to spread more scientific knowledge and ai in the vital spreading of ideas between scientific fields.
Oncotarget values the communication between scientists and medical doctors and believes that bringing them together will help make steady progress in the fight against cancer. For that reason, the online medical journal presented four biomedical researchers with travel grants in order to enable them to visit Singapore and attend the conference there called Frontiers in Cancer Science 2017. It took place from the 6th of November to the 8th, and it was attended by hundreds of scientists and medical doctors. Many of them presented their latest topics of research as well as their results. Some presented the progress they had made in their current studies and offered direction and solutions to issues.
The biomedical scientists that attended thank to Oncotarget were from the Italian Universty of Torino, The Indian National Institute of Immunology, and the Aligarh Muslim University.
The conference was hosted by several prominent institutes including the popular Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, the Genome Institute of Singapore, and more. Listen to Oncotarget podcast on Player.FM.
