European Multidisciplinary Conference on Thoracic Oncology
Date:3/4/2009

The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO), the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS) and the European Respiratory Society (ERS) are pleased to announce the first European Multidisciplinary Conference on Thoracic Oncology (EMCTO).

This meeting will provide a comprehensive update and a multidisciplinary perspective of state-of-the-art on the prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of chest tumors, including results of translational research. It will facilitate scientific and clinical exchange, with the aim of promoting an integrated approach to diagnosis, treatment and management of thoracic cancers.

Thoracic cancers are globally recognized as a major cause of mortality. Combating their causes, developing better methods for early detection, advancing research, and improving treatments, require the collaboration of many research and clinical specialties.

Organized in partnership between the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), the European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO), the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS) and the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the conference is designed to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive update and a multidisciplinary perspective of state-of-the-art management of patients with thoracic malignancies, including the role of new technologies and the necessary collaboration between various medical specialties.

By bringing together authoritative European partners in thoracic oncology, EMCTO represents an excellent opportunity to promote an integrated approach to diagnosis and treatment of chest tumors and to strengthen European cooperation and scientific exchange .

Meeting highlights:

  • New developments in understanding lung cancer biology
  • Prognostic and predictive factors in non-small-cell lung cancer
