The 2019 International Gastric Cancer Congress is set to be held in Prague from 8 – 11 May 2019, at the Prague Congress Centre. This type of cancer is a major problem worldwide and especially in Europe. The choice of the host city was not random, as due to its location it can serve as a bridge between western and eastern Europe in order to strengthen and reinforce research and collaboration in Europe and worldwide. This goal is reflected in the congress’s motto Building Bridges.
The event is expected to bring together delegates from many disciplines, reaching from basic researchers, clinical scientists and physicians from all disciplines and other health care professionals, who will discuss the rapid development of research on gastric cancer as well as new insights into tumor biology and progress in health care delivery which allow for more precise diagnostics, more efficacious treatment and better quality of care.
