ESMO and Imedex announce partnership for the World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer(R)

16.12.2004


The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO)and Imedex, Inc. announced today their collaboration in the promotion of The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer®, a clinically-focused Congress that has attracted thousands of oncologists and gastroenterologists since its inception in 1999. In a joint statement Paris Kosmidis, MD and President of ESMO, Stefan Terwindt, President of the Congress organizer, Imedex, Inc., Eric Van Cutsem, MD, PhD, and Mario Dicato, MD, Congress co-chairmen, emphasized the benefits of collaboration and dedication to the future success of the Congress.



"The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer is the most important international meeting on gastrointestinal cancer,” Dicato said, “and the endorsement by such a prominent organization as ESMO will certainly raise the exposure of this event internationally.”

"The endorsement of the World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer fits into the ongoing mission of ESMO to provide medical oncologists around the world with the information, knowledge, and experience that are the backbones of excellence in clinical practice,” said Kosmidis. “The World Congress is leading the way in offering clinically significant information to its growing number of attendees each year. We believe that this Congress plays a significant role in educating and updating medical oncologists working in the field of gastrointestinal cancers and through this collaboration, we can bring a high quality educational experience to a growing network of practicing physicians.”


The World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer (www.worldgicancer.com) is entering its 7th year, with the 2005 meeting scheduled for 15-18 June 2005 in Barcelona, Spain. The Congress provides a forum where specialists in cancer research, leading oncologists and practicing clinicians review the state-of-the-art in gastrointestinal cancer and share the latest information on its multidisciplinary management. A total of 86 countries were represented by 2,250 attendees in 2004.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
