For the past few years, there has been a rise in research studies on cancer, particularly its risk factors and causes; however, the disease continues to increase the mortality rate in Europe.

The assembly will gather multidisciplinary professionals together with oncologists and patient advocates.

Topics like different types of cancer and treatment therapies as well as measures on how standards of cancer patient care can get better will all be tackled at the event.
