The Symposium offers many opportunities to reconnect with old friends and colleagues and to meet new acquaintances from over 30 countries who share your passion and vision in furthering their knowledge in the field of hereditary cancer.

Over 600 health professionals and researchers are expected to attend, including primary care physicians, specialist physicians, laboratory researchers, nurses and genetic counselors.

The program responds to the needs and interests of clinical researchers and specialists in the field, as well as those of primary care providers who want to know more about how to evaluate their patients, and to whom to refer them.

In addition, two dedicated poster sessions will take place during the Symposium where poster presenters from around the world will be present at their posters in order to meet attendees and discuss their work. The list of posters that will be displayed during each poster session will be available once the posters are selected.
