Dear Colleague,

We at MVR Cancer Centre & Research Institute invite you with unbounded joy for 2nd MVR CANCON 2019, a novel and unique international Oncology Conference.

Tumor metastasis is the principle cause of mortality among cancer patient’s world over. Majority of our patients in India report to oncologists with advanced disease and metastasis. Therefore, we have chosen theme of conference this time as “Metastasis”.

There has been a significant progress in the science of metastasis, understanding the process of tumor dissemination – the steps between growth of the primary tumor and establishment of the secondary tumors. However, we need to have a better understanding of how tumors grow in the secondary site and how they interact with the metastatic micro-environment to modulate cell growth, apoptosis, and immune responses as well as resistance to therapeutics.

This MVR Cancon will focus on the metastatic lesion as a unique entity operating in concert with a complex local and systemic environment that influences disease aggressiveness and, ultimately, patient survival. Multiple aspects of tumor metastasis and metastatic disease will be addressed through presentations from scientific experts. Conference program will cover the latest findings on tumor evolution, the metastatic micro-environment, imaging, metastatic signatures, dormancy, and potential agents for therapy and prevention with a goal for detection & control of both micro-metastases as well as late-stage metastatic and chemoresistant cancers.

MVR CANCON 2019 will have world leaders in oncology to meet and discuss on how to better handle challenge posed by metastasis in our patients and ultimately give them better care & cure.

We look forward to welcoming you at Kozhikode this August/September.


  • Renowned National and International Faculty

  • Two young doctors with the Best ORAL presentation will be chosen for a full month observership at Cleveland Clinic, USA.

It is believed that the lingam in the sanctum of the Temple was installed towards the end of Dwaparayuga by Sri. Parasurama. The posture in the sanctum is that of Umamaheswara. Though this divine power existed from time immemorial, the attention of the citizens of Kozhikode was (bestowed on the temple) only by about 1500 years ago. Later on the temple reached its zenith during the rule of the Zamorin of Calicut, who had the prestigious title Sailabdheswara. The temple to its present state was built in the 14th century.

These ships were usually bought by Arab merchants for trading and fishing but are now used as tourist ships. According to Captain Iwata, founder member of the Association of Sumerian ships in Japan, Sumerian ships might have been built in Beypore.
