POSTPONED: Visiting Professorship Meeting on Lung Cancer

Lung cancer

Important information

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis we have made the decision to postpone the Visiting Professorship Meeting on Lung Cancer programmed for 3 April 2020 in Tirana, Albania. We will be in contact with more details about this as soon as they are confirmed.

We deeply regret having to take this decision but we feel that in the current climate we all need to do our part in trying to limit the diffusion of the virus as much as possible and this was the only decision possible considering your role in society as medical staff.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused but we think you’ll all agree that this solution was unavoidable.
