Mucosal immunity is the first line of defense against foreign invasion. It is also the site of interaction between food and microbiome and education of the immune system. Regulation and communication between these components are important to strike a balance to maintain a healthy body. Various important cancers arise from the mucosal tissues and contribute to the increase of cancer incidence and number of deaths. Causes of cancer are still guesstimated and treatment outcome remains unsatisfactory. The role of the immune system in preventing cancers is long known and immunotherapy has become a household word. However, complete success is yet to be achieved due to the complexity of cancer as well as immune response. Mucosal immunity holds untold promises in the power of the immune system to eradicate cancer that has yet to be fulfilled nor harnessed. This conference aims to bring world-renowned experts to demonstrate the potential and guide us in bringing this area of research forward.
