The contribution of alcohol to the development of a variety of cancers is becoming increasingly evident. Annually, 3.6% of all cancers are attributable to alcohol consumption, equating to a total of 390,000 cases.  The meeting will focus on recent advances in epidemiology, molecular mechanisms and biomarkers of alcohol-induced carcinogenesis, and anticancer therapy. This meeting will be an ideal platform for promoting interactions between basic scientists and clinicians in all major aspects of alcohol-induced carcinogenesis. Young scientists and graduate students symposia are included.
