Marrakech, Pullman Palmeraie Resort


Prostate cancer


Chairs: A. Alcaraz, ES - K. Touijer, US/MA

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the EASO Course on Lights and Shadows in the Management of Prostate Cancer.

As you can see from the programme, we have an array of experts, both from Arab and European countries, who will discuss many timely topics in the prostate cancer field. The programme has taken into account the progress made in surgery, radiation oncology, and medical oncology and should give enough time for everyone to discuss the applicability of recent advances. We will have as special feature the possibility of case presentations throughout the meeting which will be presented by participants, with the aim of facilitating as much as possible interaction and discussion between audience and faculty.

While the School has done its best to invite a very dedicated Faculty, the success of this course will be made by you, by your questions and your participation. We look forward to the interaction with all of you.

Antonio Alcaraz and Karim Touijer
Course Chairs
