On 25 and 28 November 2022, Professor Dr. Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Krom Phra Srisavangavadhana gave a special lecture on the topic of oncogenesis, or the process through which healthy cells become transformed into cancer cells, to the third and fourth-year medical students, lecturers and academic staff of the School of Medicine, Mae Fah Luang University at the meeting room, School of Medicine building, MFU Medical Center Hospital.
The oncology education is essential for all medical students as cancer is currently the leading cause of death in Thailand and the cancer incidence rate is likely to rise. Professor Dr. Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn's presentation consisted of six core topics covering multi-stages carcinogenesis and biology of neoplastic cells. HRH pointed out that such in-depth understanding of the cause of cancer could lead to the development of cancer drugs and targeted treatments that could effectively suppress the disease.
