Fostering esophageal cancer progress.

Aug 27, 2015 | News, Research & Innovation

In 2012, we identified a need for a scientific meeting uniting key players in cholangiocarcinoma research. In order to best foster collaboration and informal discussion, however, we wanted a format that was different that that of the typical scientific meeting. This approach led us to the TargetCancer Foundation Think Tank on Cholangiocarcinoma– a unique meeting that united not only cholangiocarcinoma experts, but also leaders from other rare cancers who shared their experiences of successfully bringing those cancers out of orphan status.

On October 19, 2015, we’re proud to bring this idea to a new area- esophageal cancer- with the Think Tank on Advancing Esophageal Cancer Research. This innovative one day meeting unites top esophageal cancer researchers and clinicians in a format designed to facilitate information sharing, brainstorming, and most importantly, collaboration. We’re excited to unite this international group of experts and catalyze projects that will move the field forward.
