At the Summit, Dr. Imoh Okon will be discussing the topic; “On the cutting edge: Innovation & Technology in Cancer Care.”

Dr. Imoh Okon’s primary research area in oncology has covered ovarian, endometrial, breast and lung cancers, with particular focus on the events that drive malignant cell transformations.

His unique areas of expertise include novel, and emerging technologies in cancer detection, diagnoses and treatments which are coordinated efforts to bring cure and improve treatments to patients. Dr. Okon’s research team has expanded into areas of cardio-metabolic conditions, such as obesity, and diabetes.

I’m so impressed, I’m not even going to try and objectify him by mentioning how yummy he is.
