On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 17th International Congress on Hormonal Steroids and Hormones & Cancer to be held at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study, Stellenbosch, South Africa, from 26-29 November 2018.
The Department of Biochemistry at Stellenbosch University has a long history in steroid research and we are excited to welcome both our local and international colleagues to our institution located in the world-famous winelands of Stellenbosch. The conference coincides with the centenary of Stellenbosch University and forms part of our celebrations. In addition, the conference precedes the 18th International Congress of Endocrinology, which will be held at the Cape Town Convention Centre, Cape Town, South Africa, from 1-4 December 2018.
The objective of this conference is to promote interaction and discussion within the field of steroid hormones and hormone-dependent cancers. The conference will consist of a keynote lecture, plenary lectures, oral and poster presentations. We have also provided time for networking while taking in the beautiful sights of the Stellenbosch winelands.
We look forward to welcoming you in Stellenbosch in 2018!
Dr Karl Storbeck, Chairperson
Local Organising Committee
