Making it Personal: Cancer Precision Medicine

Bergamo, Italy : 5 - 7 November 2018

Networking Opportunities

At the EACR, we know that conferences are about more than just hearing the latest research. Our events are well-known for providing excellent opportunities for networking, interaction and discussion. Here are a few of the features you can look forward to at Making it Personal 2018.

Meet the Expert talk

Monday 5 November at 16:45

As a leading scientist in the area of single cell sequencing, Prof. Andrea Califano will share his perspective on the current state of the field. Methodologies and recent developments will be discussed, and there will be an opportunity for you to ask your questions.


Poster Discussion Sessions

Monday 5 November, 17:30-19:00 (posters 1-28 will be presented)

Tuesday 6 November, 12:45-14:15, (posters 29-55 will be presented)

The programme features two 90 minute Poster Discussion Sessions which will be an excellent opportunity to present and discuss the latest research. As well as these dedicated sessions, there will be additional opportunities to browse the posters throughout the meeting.


Panel Discussion

Four invited speakers will tackle the topic 'How can we make it personal?', discussing the challenges of implementing precision cancer medicine in the clinic. The discussion will be chaired by Professor Daniel Peeper, and participants are invited to contribute to the conversation.


Walking Tour of Bergamo

Tuesday 6 November at 18:00

Join this social event to explore the fascinating city of Bergamo on foot, led by expert local guides. The tour will leave directly from the conference venue after the conclusion of the programme, and will finish in the centre of the ancient Città Alta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Conference Dinner

Tuesday 6 November at 19:30

The Conference Dinner will take place on the final night of the meeting at the Ristorante La Taverna Colleoni, in the centre of historic Bergamo. It will be an excellent opportunity for participants and speakers to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal environment. A four course meal will be served, with wine (or alternative) and coffee included in the ticket price.

Tickets for the conference dinner are not included in the registration fee and can be purchased as an optional extra for €61.

"The intimate setting stimulated active discussions and promoted setting up collaborations between researchers. I would certainly like to attend again and would highly recommend to colleagues!"
