Clinical workshop: Breast cancer

Wednesday, 12 February, at Jaarbeurs Meetup, Utrecht

One of the aims of Oncode Institute is to strengthen the link between fundamental and clinical research, with the ultimate goal of successfully translating fundamental research findings into clinical applications. To that end, Oncode is organizing a series of workshops to discuss challenges around a specific tumor type.

In this workshop we will focus on Breast Cancer. The goal of the workshop is to:

  • Discuss the clinical practice, clinical needs and current trends in clinical and fundamental research.
  • Explore together how fundamental research can address unmet needs and stimulate new collaboration (translational and clinical) projects.

Speakers

  • Hugo Horlings – Pathologist & Clinical Group leader, NKI
  • Willemien Menke - Medical Oncologist, Amsterdam UMC-location Vumc
  • Jacco van Rheenen – Group Leader, NKI
  • Lindsay Angus – Clinician-scientist Intern oncology, Erasmus MC
  • Marleen Kok- Medical Oncologist & Group Leader, AVL-NKI
  • Wilbert Zwart – Group Leader, NKI
  • Roland Kanaar – Group Leader, Erasmus MC

Agnes Jager and Jos Jonkers will chair the workshop.
