ESMO Sarcoma & Rare Cancers Congress 2023

Start date
20 Mar 2023
End date
22 Mar 2023
Lugano, Switzerland

ESMO Sarcoma &  Rare Cancers is a new annual congress which will take place for the first time in Lugano, Switzerland, on 20 – 22 March 2023.

This highly specialised meeting will integrate contents from both the former ESMO Sarcoma GIST & Symposium and the ESO-ESMO-RCE Clinical Update on Rare Adult Solid Cancers, bringing  together the most brilliant medical minds working on these tumour types.

The ESMO Sarcoma & Rare Cancers Congress will constitute a unique occasion for the international rare cancers community to network and collaborate, featuring discussions with key opinion leaders in these sub-entities.

The congress will focus on the heterogeneous cohort of rare histologies across organ sites, and on their common themes: from diagnosis and pathology, to multidisciplinary expert management, from targeted therapies and precision medicine, to research, methodological challenges and policy.

We look forward to welcoming you next spring to Lugano for three days of debates on the advancements in the treatment of rare cancers.
