Hot Topics in molecular Imaging – TOPIM 2010 workshop, Bardonecchia, Italy, 7 to 12 February 2010

This year's HOT TOPIC is "IMAGING SYSTEMS BIOLOGY": An interdisciplinary and contemporary issue.
The international workshop organized by The European Society for Molecular Imaging – ESMI is the fourth in a series of annual seminars. The workshop concept is dealing with the difficulty in establishing good, direct communication between scientists, whether working in the same subject area or in interdisciplinary research. Scientists with common professional interests come together for a full week of intense discussion on the most advanced aspects in their field. This workshop provides valuable means of disseminating information and ideas in a way that cannot be achieved through the channels of communication in large scientific meetings.

The workshop was held in the former Olympic Village in Bardonecchia, Italy, February 7-12, 2010

Details on programme and speakers at the TOPIM2010 website

ECCO 15 - 34th ESMO Multidisciplinary Congress

The joint 15th Congress of the European CanCer Organisation and 34th Congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology was held in the Internationale Congress Centrum Berlin (ICC Berlin), Berlin, Germany from Sunday 20 to Thursday 24 September 2009.

OECI Stand at ECCO 15 

The Hereditary Breast & Ovarian Cancers (HBOC) Meeting is designed in several sessions, beginning with a broad coverage of risk-assessment and preventive strategies, to be followed by defining the biology, refining unsolved clinical questions, and stimulating the testing of interventions in women at highest risk. Topics covered three general areas concerning women’s cancers: 1) epidemiology of familial cancers, 2) research on genetic aspects of these diseases, and 3) interventions, mostly clinical, that may be applied to prevent these cancers – including psychosocial aspects relevant to such interventions.

Bari (Italy), September 10-12, 2009

Exploitation of Research Outcomes towards Cancer Patients' Expectations

The meeting presented the results of successful projects in Belgium and Italy in the field of cancer translational research in line with the spirit of building the European Research Area. The aims of the conference are useful to improve human health, scientific discoveries must be translated into practical applications.

Clinical introduction and evaluation of new anticancer drugs

Dear Clleagues,
There is a rapid development regarding identification of new targets for anticancer therapy and development of new anticancer agents. The increasing number of new registered anticancer agents with more specific actions causes frustration among payers. The role of the Comprehensive Cancer Center is to innovate the cancer care. Therefore a rational use of new anticancer agents is mandatory. The workshop will cover different aspects regarding introduction and evaluation of new cancer agents as well as development of personalized cancer medicine as the way to optimize cancer treatment. New potential collaboration will be discussed.
You are very welcome !

Accreditation Workshops : "2007 OECI training programme accreditation of european comprehensive cancer centres"

The objectives of the OECI accreditation project are to define consensual quality standards and criteria for European oncology and develop a tool for professionals enabling performances of the institutions to be assessed both internally plus externally. Our shared objectives are constant quality improvement, benchmarking and defence of the centre model within each country and through further European labelisation.

Workshop Program: European Tissue Banking for Medical Research

Rotterdam, March 29th and 30th 2007

Program Day 1 - Program Day 2

Tissue banks and networks of tissue banks are recognized as the fundamental resource for multi-center translational research. Rapid developments for co-operation and networks are needed in tissue banking to form the basis of future multi-center translational research. Due to different approaches in translational research also different models have been developed. Networks of repositories have the task to unite these different forms. The OECI has implemented International tissue banking in its program by taking up the TuBaFrost project.

Workshop Innovation, Stockholm, January 12th 2007

The workshop was hosted by the Karolinska University Hospital Solna, Stockholm.

In combating cancer, one of the most important concepts is innovation. Diagnostics, treatment and prevention must continuously improve by implementing new knowledge from research. Comprehensive cancer centers integrating research and education with health care have the optimized environments for innovation. Nevertheless, there is no well developed strategy to overcome present obstacles to increase transfer of new information from basic to clinical research as well as implement new research information into clinical practise. Therefore we plan a workshop to discuss the concept of innovation and what should be the specific role for the comprehensive cancer centres.
