Cancer research is progressing thanks to the daily contribution of many scientists worldwide. However, only a few of these scientists make revolutionary contributions that make clinical impact and change the way we think about cancer therapy.

In the first part of the meeting, IBSA Foundation will present three “GIANTS” of cancer research, whose contribution has led to highly innovative and clinically-effective therapies.

In the final part of the meeting, Prof. Solange Peters, the future President of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO), will present an overview on how this pioneering research has been moved to the clinic.

The Forum is organized by IBSA Foundation for scientific research in collaboration with Andrea Alimonti (Università della Svizzera italiana – USI, IOR and IBSA Foundation) and Franco Cavalli (Foundation for the Institute of Oncology Research – IOR).

This special edition of the IBSA scientific Forum will take place within the 15th International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma (ICML), which has become the most important international gathering in the field of research and treatment of lymphoid neoplasms, organized by Professor Cavalli and the Foundation for the Institute of Oncology Research (IOR).

The forum is free and open not only to ICML participants but to anyone interested.
