Why should you attend?
This conference will provide attendees with an overview of emerging trends in oncology, solid organ- and blood/marrow transplantation. Join us as clinical experts provide insight into innovative approaches to the ongoing management and continuing support of patients with complex cancers and organ failures.
Specialists will share their visions of the evolution of oncology treatments expected within the next decade, focusing on advances in medical, surgical and radiation therapy treatment options. Innovations in the comprehensive treatment of thyroid cancer and stem cell transplantation in sickle cell disease will be featured. Furthermore, challenges and successes in improving the patient experience both during treatment and as those patients become long-term survivors will be highlighted.
Conference participants will gain insight into the organ donation continuum, living kidney donation, and the ethics of organ transplantation. Sessions will highlight advances in lung and heart transplant and the left ventricular assistive device, as well as intestinal rehabilitation.
