O futuro da medicina personalizada e da investigação oncológica

O programa da ASCO 2016 contempla os mais recentes avanços na medicina personalizada e imuno-oncologia, bem como as novas abordagens que tornam as terapêuticas convencionais do cancro mais benéficas para os doentes.

O programa do evento garante uma oferta diversificada no âmbito da oncologia, incluindo temas como: medicina de precisão, qualidade de vida dos doentes oncológicos, imunoterapia, novas abordagens terapêuticas no contexto do tratamento convencional. Destaca-se ainda, uma sessão plenária que engloba apresentações didáticas de elevada qualidade científica e com impacto na prática clínica.
