The themes included cancer diagnosis and treatment, cancer stem cells and carcinogenesis. The event attracted numerous Japanese scholars. Since 2013, the universities have taken turns hosting such events every 18 months, and this is the fourth such gathering.

The university has maintained academic exchanges with Tokyo Medical and Dental University for over a decade, starting in 2004 with the colleges of medicine and oral medicine forming partnerships and leading to a sister schools agreement in 2015. The next joint symposium is set for November 2019; National Taiwan University and the National Defense Medical Center were also invited to co-host the event in Taipei.
