Dear Colleagues,
it is a great pleasure to welcome you at the 2nd Global Insight Conference on Breast Cancer and
Lymphomas, which is hosted by the Tianjin Medical University Cancer Institute & Hospital in
collaboration with CACA.

As the President of the Scientific Committee of ESO, I’m proud to be able to co-sponsor an highlevel
global conference and I’m sure that this will be even more successful than the first
conference, which was held in Mumbai two years ago.

The ESO was founded in 1982 by prof. Umberto Veronesi and has in the meantime developed to
the most important European educational organization in the broader field of oncology. ESO has
currently, however, also an important programme in Eurasia and has created a Euro-Arab school.
With this 2nd Global Insight Conference we would like also to underscore our interest for the Asia-
Pacific region.

The Conference will bring together outstanding Chinese and International cancer professionals. We
are particularly glad to be able to organize this event in a city like Tianjin, which is hosting one of
the most important cancer institutes in China. I’m sure, that this event will underline once more the
increasing importance of this unique city.

I will be very pleased to welcome you personally at this Conference.
