EHiN Webinar: Road Map for Cancer Control
– Get insight from European experiences on next generation approaches on genomics and innovative therapies.
We are delighted to invite you to this exciting webinar, where we explore some of Europe’s most future oriented and progressive experiences on key areas within modern cancer control and care, such as genomics and new and innovative therapies.
The webinar takes place Friday 28th of May at 10:00-12:00 CET.
The fight against cancer can not be won unless we all join forces – and this is the background for the ambitious European partnership iPAAC, that aims to develop a roadmap on implementation of innovative actions to cancer control.
In this webinar, we go in depth on two of the work packages of the partnership, and we will hear from some of the leading environments in the fields of genomics and innovative therapies.
The webinar is free and open for everyone with an interest in modern cancer control and care.
