ESMO Translational Research and Precision Medicine Working Group

The ESMO Translational Research Working Group was formed to promote high-quality translational research in oncology and to develop translational research-related content for the Society's educational programmes.

in 2012, the ESMO Executive Board established the Personalised Medicine Task Force to steer ESMO's scientific and educational strategy and to monitor policy-oriented initiatives in personalised medicine at EU level.

In 2014, the ESMO Translational Research Working Group and the ESMO Personalised Medicine Task Force became a single group. With such a merge, ESMO aims to optimise the activities in these two related fields and maximise targeted education on translating cancer discoveries into clinical practice setting.
