Delegates from our hospital attended the first ESMO Asia Conference
From 17th to 21st of December, 2015, the first European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Asia conference was held in the Republic of Singapore. Founded in 1975, ESMO is the second largest organization of clinical oncology around the world. Its mission is to improve the quality of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and to disseminate knowledge in oncology to cancer patients and the public. Moreover, it provides an excellent platform for oncologists from all over the world to collaborate with each other.
This conference has attracted 2,529 scholars around the world, and 85% of them are from the Asia-Pacific region. 784 abstracts of papers have been submitted and 521 of them are accepted by the conference, including 42 oral presentations and 57 poster discussions. All accepted abstracts will be published in a special issue at Annals of Oncology, a top magazine in oncology.
More than ten sessions are opened for general cancers in this conference concerning head and neck, thoracic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, central nervous system, gynecological tumors and lymphoma. The content covers the latest research progress, ESMO clinical oncology guidelines, case reports and discussions. Furthermore, the ESMO conference has also opened a special symposium for nasopharyngeal carcinoma, which is prevalent in Southeast Asia. A translational research from our hospital has been accepted as poster discussion and Dr. Huai Liu from the second department of thoracic radiotherapy has been invited to participate in the conference. Prof. k.o'byrne from Ireland hosts this session and makes his comments and suggestions for Mr. Liu’s efforts.
In recent years, our hospital has made great efforts in international cooperation, talents introduction, and scientific research input, and made remarkable achievements. Several researches have been accepted as oral presentations at different international conferences. Moreover, 11 projects have been funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China in 2015, a record high in our history.
