Dear friends and colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to announce the 3rd International Conference on Cancer Prevention on October 26th and 27th, 2022 in Heidelberg.

Cancer represents a major disease burden for our society. By 2040, the number of new cancer cases worldwide is expected to almost double to about 30 million per year. With the primary prevention measures already known, 40% of all new cancer cases could be prevented today. By implementing both, prevention and early detection, mortality could be reduced by up to 70%. However, the enormous potential of cancer prevention is not being exploited to the necessary extent.

Cancer prevention research and its implementation is a global task for the future. With our conference series on cancer prevention, we aim to increase the visibility of cancer prevention research at all levels, from basic research to scientific implementation, and to raise awareness of the importance of cancer prevention research.

The International Conference on Cancer Prevention is an event series of the National Cancer Prevention Center (NCPC), and is a contribution of the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and German Cancer Aid to the National Decade Against Cancer in Germany. The international conference is currently planned as an on-site event at the DKFZ in Heidelberg and will additionally be broadcasted via live-stream.

This year we are once again making every effort to put together a comprehensive and exciting program that reflects current trends in cancer prevention research and its implementation. We are looking forward to bringing together scientists in the field of cancer prevention from around the world to pool research expertise and promote scientific exchange.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the CCP2022!


Kind regards,

Michael Baumann, Chairman and Scientific Director, German Cancer Research Center
Gerd Nettekoven, Chairman, German Cancer Aid
