About the Cancer Molecular Therapeutics Research Association (CMTRA)
The purpose of CMTRA is to provide a highly interactive forum for the presentation and discussion of novel drugs, drug targets and the preclinical and clinical development of novel cancer therapeutics. It has been founded with the goal of providing annual meetings with scientific presentations at the cutting edge of translational science complemented by extensive discussion.
The meetings will promote the tradition of full and unhampered discussion of new scientific concepts and data with an "off the record" policy which prohibits publication of the proceedings, photography or tape recordings of the sessions. This policy has enabled this conference to be viewed as a safe haven for individuals from competing academic, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to freely exchange ideas.
Those of you who attend larger mainstream cancer conferences will appreciate the informal nature of this meeting and the time we are able to devote to full discussions of novel science findings that support the development of new agents.
