OECI-EACR precision medicine for cancer: Conference report 1-4 March 2015, Luxembourg.
- NORLUX Neuro-Oncology Laboratory
The 'Precision Medicine for Cancer' was the first meeting of a new series of conferences organised biannually by the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) and the Organisation for European Cancer Institutes (OECI). The main objective of the meeting was to focus on novel topics in precision medicine by allowing strong interactions between participants and to access the speakers easily. As the first implementations of personalised medicine are appreciated in the clinic, the aim of the meeting was to further educate both researchers and clinicians and learn more from the novel approaches in the field. Similarly, the interaction between two organisations-the research-oriented EACR and the clinic-oriented OECI-was of a great value for the meeting. This OECI-EACR 2015 report will highlight the major findings of this outstanding meeting. © the authors; licensee ecancermedicalscience.
