This year ESMO Women for Oncology will present a series of events around the ESMO Virtual Congress 2020.
The “fil rouge” of the events is “Women in research”. The topic will be explored from multiple perspectives: status quo of women representation in researches and publications; impact of the pandemic; and practical suggestions on how to run researches and write impactful publications.
