EACR-OECI Joint Conference: Molecular Pathology Approach to Cancer

Lisbon, Portugal : 18 - 20 May 2020


Molecular pathology is revolutionising clinical practice in oncology and pathology paving the way for precision medicine, and has evolved into a growing research field. Knowledgeable molecular pathologists are a significant bottle neck for advancing cancer research and patient care.

This meeting will provide participants with a broad view of the scope, methodologies, future directions and challenges in addition to practical approaches for molecular pathology in research and in clinical settings. The potential uses of deep learning in pathology will be discussed. The meeting will help participants to establish a network of interactions and to build bridges to foster cross disciplinary studies. We are preparing for the future and for the unknown discoveries still to come.

Target audience

This conference will be of interest to a diverse audience including pathologists, molecular pathologists and pathology residents, researchers in the field of molecular diagnostics and precision oncologists. The conference population will thus simulate the multidisciplinary teams that act in the real world to facilitate interdisciplinary research and the multidisciplinary teams caring for patients with cancer.

Topics to be covered

  • Current views on molecular pathology
  • Molecular pathology of colorectal cancer
  • Cancer models for biomarker discovery, from animal models to patient derived organoids
  • New technologies in diagnostic onco-pathology.
