Cancer Research & Nucleic Acids

International Conference on Cancer Research & Nucleic Acids 2021

Theme: Next Generation Multimodality of Nanomedicine Therapy: From smart targets, models and gene alterations

  • March 11 - 12, 2021
  • 09.00 - 15.30 EST/ 14.00 – 20.30 GMT
"Virtual Conference"


We welcome all the participants across the globe to attend the 1st International Conference on Nucleic Acids and Cancer, hosted by the Research Gate International Corporation, will be held virtually on March 11-12,  2021.  The conference’s scientific chairs are Dr. Jean-Yves Masson (Laval University) and  Dr. Myron Szewczuk (Queen’s University).

This virtual conference will bring together diverse researchers studying the mechanisms that protect the human genome, cancer biology, and therapeutics. Cancer is a complex disease. In normal cells, a variety of DNA repair pathways are used to protect the genome against different types of DNA damage. Defects in DNA damage repair and checkpoint control are underlying mechanisms driving tumorigenesis since they allow for the accumulation of genetic mutations. This creates vulnerabilities in cancer cells that can be targeted by DNA damaging agents and inhibitors.

The conference will also promote discussions on understanding tumor evolution and therapeutic responses through state-of-the-art scientific and clinical approaches.

E-Poster Presentations

  • Presenters who are not able to participate as a speaker because of the busy schedule, are welcome to present their e-poster at the conference webinar.
  • Abstracts have to be submitted online or by email.
  • The abstract should include complete details (e.g., abstract title, name, affiliation, abstract and biography, etc) Sample abstract template
  • Only subject related abstracts & associated e-posters which are submitted will be displayed on the website before the conference webinar.
  • Each of these abstracts will be published in the post-conference webinar proceedings.
  • If the registered author/poster presenter is unable to participate in the conference webinar then he/she may send a substitute who can be a co-author (or) any member from the same institution.
  • All poster presenters have to register before the registration date closes.
  • The e-poster presentation schedule will be informed to you once the program is finalized.
  • Each of the accepted abstracts will be published in the post-conference webinar proceedings and digital recognition across the research filed.

E-Poster Guidelines

  • Each poster should be submitted in 1080 pixel jpeg, PPT slide & PDF
  • Font should be in Times New Roman /Arial
  • The title and the author’s information should be clearly visible in the header in bold font.
  • The text should be readable even when it zoomed in to the full screen.
  • Present picture-numerical data in the form of graphs, rather than tables (graphs make trends in the data much more evident). If data must be presented in table-form, keep it simple.
  • Use bright colors to enhance the details.
  • Organize your poster into subdivisions i.e. Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusions, Acknowledgement, and Literature Cited (avoid using too many citations).
  • Avoid acronyms and extensive mathematical notations as much as possible.
  • Avoid submitting compactly packed, high word-count in the poster.



Live Q&A opportunity in panel discussions after each session with eminent speakers.


DOI will give digital recognition to the accepted peer reviewed abstracts which are published in past conference report.


Get appropriate accreditation certificate by expanding your knowledge on most recent developments in the research topics.

Webinar Guidelines

For smooth flow of the program please follow the below steps before the webinar starts:

  • After you register for the webinar, you will receive confirmation and reminder emails about the program updates. Please check your junk mail folder if you do not see the email in your inbox.
  • Our webinar begins promptly at 0800 ET. Please join the webinar 5-10 minutes early to minimize last minute issues.
  • Everyone will be muted upon entry to the webinar when you join the webinar. Speakers will be enabled with the SHARE option only before their presentation.
  • We suggest you to install the Zoom/Cisco Webex app instead of using the web browser as you may experience interlace in the audio/video in the browser.
  • Please restart your computer in order to purge all the memory dump/hindering settings for free flow of the presentation.
  • If you have audio/video difficulties ping us in private chat or call us so that our technical team can help you in resolving the issue.
  • All presenters are requested to send an email to for scheduling a demo meeting for 15 min to familiarize with the setup one week before the event.
  • All speakers are requested to submit the presentations 48 hours before the day of the event to be ready for the unforeseen technical circumstances.
  • Please attend full scheduled webinar to receive the certificates as the partial attendees will not be awarded certificates as per the CE/CME/CPD accreditation guidelines.
