Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee we have the pleasure to invite you to the third edition of the Symposium of Personalized Translation Oncology (Simpozionul de Oncologie Translațională Personalizată) STOP Cancer.

The proceedings of the symposium will be held in Bucharest, Romania on May 10-12, 2019, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Str. Poligrafiei nr. 1.

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

The speakers are eminent Oncology experts, surgeons, radiation oncology specialists, medical oncologist, pathologists and basic science researchers from Romania, USA and Western Europe.

Our intention is on one hand to facilitate the dialogue between Romanian oncology specialists from Romania and diaspora, and on the other hand, to create a Romanian 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 platform of collaboration will help improve both the diagnostic of cancer in Romania and the prognosis and the quality of life of Romanian cancer patients. We are honored by the participation of several prominent Romanian oncology specialists both from Romania and abroad.
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.
