Dear Colleagues,


On behalf of the Organizing Committee we have the pleasure to invite you to the third edition of the Symposium of Personalized Translational Oncology (Simpozionul de Oncologie Translațională Personalizată) STOP Cancer, which will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Poligrafiei Str. nr. 1., in Bucharest, Romania on May 10th-12th 2019.


The Translational Personalized Oncology Symposium (STOP cancer-Romania) is organized by the “Transdisciplinary Society of Personalized Oncology for Combating Cancer ,“ The National Society of Medical Oncology of Romania” and”The Romanian Association of Surgery”.

At this third edition will participate oncology surgeons, radiotherapists, medical oncologists, pathologists, scientists and researchers in basic science from Romania, United States of America and Europe.


Our intention is on one hand to facilitate the dialogue between Romanian oncology specialists and Diaspora, and on the other hand, to create an oncology translational research platform for information and ideas exchange between basic science researchers and oncology clinicians with the goal of developing, in the immediate future, research projects of mutual interest.


We hope that this collaboration platform will help improve both the diagnostic of cancer in Romania and the prognosis and quality of life of Romanian cancer patients.


We are honored by the participation of lecturers from Romania and abroad, which will guarantee the success of this symposium.


Your presence to this symposium is highly appreciated.  We specifically invite you to interact with our guest speakers and ask a lot of questions. Interaction is our main goal so please don’t be shy, all questions are welcome!

The official language of the symposium is Romanian.

For registration, we invite you to visit the site:


CME credits will be provided to all participants!

We look forward to having you as our guests!


The Organizing Committee.
