Welcome

Symposium – Vitamin C for Cancer and Infection: from Bench to Bedside

There has been an upsurge in new discoveries around the role of vitamin C in cancer and infection. Public awareness and the interest of many health professionals in vitamin C has increased following a number of recent reports of clinical benefit from vitamin C administration and new mechanistic insights are providing rationales for targeted clinical trials.

This Symposium brings together the widest group of international experts working in the field of vitamin C, cancer and infectious diseases ever gathered in New Zealand. These comprise respected international research scientists and clinicians conducting clinical trials who will share their latest discoveries in the fields of cancer and infection.

The target audience is doctors, nurses, pharmacists, biomedical and clinical researchers, students and trainees, hospital administrators, policy makers, industry, and the general public. Travel awards will be awarded to the top student/trainee poster abstract submissions.

The ‘Vitamin C for cancer and infection – from bench to bedside’ activity has been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and registered with The College of Intensive Care Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (CICM) for Continuing Professional Development.
