The Changing Face of Oncology

🔷🔶 The Changing Face of Oncology 2022 🔷🔶

On Saturday the 26nd of November we organized the first full day event of our brand new medical team: The Changing Face of Oncology.

We wish to sincerely thank our many speakers who shared their work on the front line of these scientific development. Prof. Dr. Gert De Meerleer and prof. Dr. Frederik Berrevoet presented their latest discoveries in respectively urologic and gastro-intestinal oncology. Ge Healthcare gave us the change to wonder at the mechanisms behind the mammography technique and trained our own eyes to spot the brooding cancer cells. They generously provided an ultrasound biopsy workshop as well, using volume navigation ultrasonography. Elmedix introduced our members to the innovational thermal therapy as an alternative for patients with cancer types not adequately addressed by available therapies. We also had the pleasure of introducing prof. dr. Ir. Damya Laoui, prof. dr. Daan Dierickx and prof. dr. Sabine Tejpar experts on respectively anti-cancer vaccines, lymphoma’s and gastro-intestinal adeno carcinoma’s.

Bringing together these experts and unique workshops, we hope to have inspired and motivated our members to take interest in the life-saving power of innovation and research.

We’re looking forward to see you again on one of our events!
