09 Feb 2022 at 18:30 CET

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the first ESMO Deep Dive: Upper GI Webinar which is focused on prevention, screening, and early diagnosis of non-colorectal cancers.

This seminar will bring together all the relevant aspects of gastro-oesophageal, hepatocellular carcinoma and pancreatic cancers prevention, their early development, including clinical and molecular features, as well as the impact of specific screening strategies and novel research directions.

The webinar will begin with a brief introduction, follow by three lectures provided by 3 international experts on these fields, Drs. Rebecca Fitzgerald, Amit Singal and Nuria Malats. The webinar will conclude with a live discussion of questions submitted by the audience whilst the webinar is taking place.
