Welcome to the European Association for Cancer Research
Europe’s membership association for cancer researchers


Welcome to ESMO 2017!

In partnership with the EACR

ESMO 2017 begins today and we have a packed schedule including basic and translational tracks perfectly suited to the EACR members attending. EACR Past President Richard Marais holds the role of Scientific Committee Co-Chair for the Congress and current EACR President Anton Berns chairs the basic science track. The EACR also has a great presence in the translational research track co-chaired by EACR Secretary General Joan Seoane, and Charles Swanton, ESMO representative and EACR Member.

What to look out for

From 11:00 on Friday 08 September we welcome EACR members and guests to the EACR Members Lounge for our EACR Meet and Greet. This is a great networking opportunity at the start of the Congress to engage with members from around the world and make new connections.

On Friday afternoon at 14:00 we look forward to the ESMO-EACR joint symposium on Preclinical models for developing combination therapeutics, co-moderated by Anton Berns. Our second joint symposium will take place on Sunday 10 September at 11:00 in collaboration with ESMO and the EORTC. This session will discuss Tumours with rare oncogenic lesions: From pre-clinical to clinical validation. It will bring our past (Richard Marais), present (Anton Berns) and future (Alberto Bardelli) EACR Presidents together for a fascinating session.

From bench to bedside

We are excited to be sharing the message of collaboration and exchange of ideas between researchers and clinicians at this Congress and we eagerly anticipate hearing about the partnerships and projects which will begin this week in Madrid!
