After the huge success of our 1st International Ewing sarcoma Symposium, hosted by the Bone Cancer Research Trust and Professor Sue Burchill from the University of Leeds (UK), we are delighted to confirm that we will be holding another International meeting on Friday 15th October 2021. Advances in Ewing Sarcoma Research will be an annual meeting, uniting the international Ewing sarcoma research community to make progress for our patients.
Building on the progress made at the 2020 symposium, Advances in Ewing Sarcoma Research 2021 will bring together researchers from all over the world, to showcase current translational research, identify challenges and gaps and be the catalyst for collaborations and future research priorities.
We are delighted to announce that our 2 Keynote Speakers have been confirmed:
Dr Thomas Grünewald, from the Division of Translational Pediatric Sarcoma Research, German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ), Heidelberg, will join us to give a Keynote presentation entitled 'Translational genomics and targeted therapy of Ewing sarcoma'.
