We have prepared an exciting program, that will cover the following main topics in inherited gastrointestinal cancers:

 

  • Germline and somatic molecular mechanisms
  • Genetic variant interpretation
  • Next generation sequencing for diagnosis and research
  • Risk assessment and counseling
  • Endoscopic surveillance and treatment
  • Surgical treatment and prevention
  • Associated extraintestinal tumors: risks, surveillance and prevention
  • Immunology, immune checkpoint inhibitors, and vaccine development
  • Chemoprevention trials
  • Patient needs and services
  • Collaborative studies and reports from regional groups

 

The program will also include interactive sessions (case discussions, endoscopic and surgical procedures, psychosocial issues).

Invited lectures will be given by experts from different continents covering a wide range of disciplines: gastroenterology, surgical endoscopy, surgery, oncology, clinical and molecular genetics, pathology, immunology, genetic counselling and psychology.
