COURSES AND SEMINARS
Chairs: M.S. Aapro, CH - J. Gligorov, FR
The development of specific treatments, with an endocrine and now many other “targets” is revolutionizing cancer treatment. There is a clear need to define the disease of the patient more precisely.
This event will try to find answers to questions such as which parameters are of importance for the efficacy of the treatment, or what can be asked from new methods, what do they bring today and what will they bring tomorrow.
• Learn about genomics research and its impact on cancer prognosis and therapy response (prediction)
• Learn how to apply clinical genomics in cancer patients

The Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE) and the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) have acknowledged the quality of the scientific programme and its educational value. The Molecular Diagnostics in Clinical Oncology course has been assigned 9 European Continuing Medical Education Credits (ECMEC).
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.
The official language of the course will be English. No simultaneous translation will be provided.
The badge is the only official evidence of registration and should be worn at all times during the course. Loss of badge means loss of registration.
The organisers bear no responsability for untoward events in relation with the participation in the Seminar. Participants are advised to take out their own personal and travel insurance coverage.
A limited number of travel grants will be available. Requests for support should be submitted together with the application form by the application deadline.
Travel grants in the following amounts will be refunded to successful applicants by bank transfer after the course:
EUR 150 for participants coming from Italy; EUR 250 for participants coming from Southern and Western Europe; EUR 350 for participants coming from Northern Europe; EUR 400 for participants coming from other regions.**
