ESMO Congress 2016 YO Track 

"We have an exciting Young Oncologists track for you at this year's ESMO Congress.

Together with well known sessions from previous ESMO congresses, the 2016 Vesalius Talk is focussing on developing an effective collaboration between basic scientists and oncologists.

We have also introduced a mentorship session, giving you the opportunity to discuss your educational and career development needs with leading oncology experts in three different areas: academia, oncology practice and the pharmaceutical industry. 

We hope you'll enjoy the programme and look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen!" Raffaele Califano, YO Programme Chair
