Dear Colleagues!

This time it`s Krefeld, again! On behalf of the scientific committee it is a pleasure to invite you  to the 5th International Symposium Vitamin D and Analogs in Cancer Prevention and Therapy.

During the past years our knowledge about molecular biology, metabolism and biologic effects of vitamin D and analogs has exploded.These findings have lead to new concepts for the application of vitamin D and analogs to cancer, and it is obvious that enormous progress is beeing made on this area. This meeting is specifically designed to offer scientists and clinicians insights into the latest developments in this intriguing research area. The program will include keynote lectures as well as free communications. You are cordially invited to join this meeting.

We hope to see you soon in Krefeld!
