Paediatric Diseases Working Party Educational Course on Cancer Predisposition

Event type:
Educational Meeting

Welcome Message

During the last decades, hereditary cancer genetics have become increasingly explored, mostly due to significant advancement in molecular biological technologies. As childhood malignancies are rarely associated with environmental exposures, understanding the underlying genetic factors is of crucial relevance. The nowadays known 10% of cancer predisposition syndromes in children with malignancy might actually be even underestimated. Due to this highly relevant content, the PDWP of the EBMT decided to dedicate a scientific meeting exclusively to this area of research, which will gain increasingly importance in the upcoming years. During three days, all relevant pathways and cancer predisposition syndromes will be presented by international experts from all over the world in an entirely virtual, but live webinar. Each session will offer the opportunity to interact directly with the expert in order to discuss the presentation and to ask questions from your clinical practice. 

We are looking forward to welcome you on October 7-9 for taking actively part in this completely new educational format of the PDWP.

Selim Corbacioglu, PDWP Chair
Josu de la Fuente, PDWP Vice Chair
Katharina Kleinschmidt, PDWP Secretary
Hilda Mekelenkamp, NG Paediatric Committee Chair
