Keynote Speakers

Keynote Speaker I


Prof. Dr. Tomohiro Matsuda
President of the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR), the World Health Organization (WHO)

 Dr Tomohiro Matsuda of National Cancer Center (NCC), Japan officially took office of the President of the International Association of Cancer Registries (IACR) this year.
IACR, which not only sets specifications for cancer registry and data, also fosters exchange of information between cancer registries internationally, to improve the quality of data and comparability between registries. As Dr Matsuda, NCC Section Head of the National Cancer Registry contributes to the IACR, the synergy between the two institutions is likely to lead to strengthened incorporation of Asian input, in addition to the traditionally active contributors of Europe and North America, thus resulting in a framework opening more avenues into international cooperation with comparable data.
With the introduction of legislation, since 2016, all cancer diagnoses throughout Japan are registered. The first batch of this data is to be made publicly available in 2018. The data will be utilized mainly in cancer control in Japan, but is also expected to underpin comparative studies not only with Asian, but with other countries around the globe. Studies of Japanese occurrence and outcome, in comparison with other countries should lead to the evaluation of Japanese cancer treatments, and also contribute in unraveling the mechanisms of occurence of rare cancers mainly observed specific to Asia.
