This particular event was a high ranking conference at European level which covered the following scientific topics:


  • Molecular diagnosis/prediction/prognosis
  • Serum tumour markers present and future
  • Molecular diagnosis/prediction/prognosis
  • Genomics-driven approaches
  • Epigenetics, microRNAs, free dsRNA
  • Liquid biopsy/Exosomes
  • Molecular immunological markers for cancer patients
  • Cancer-related inflammation and biomarkers
  • Personalised medicine
  • Anticancer therapies  - from research to trials to treatment
  • Anticancer drugs - new developments, new strategies
  • Immunotherapy
  • Microenviroment / metastasis / invasion
  • Tumor heterogeneity
  • Circulating cancer cells
  • Biomarker validation
  • BioBanking
  • Challenges in interdisciplinary studies
  • IT for research and medicine
  • Protection of intellectual property

The title of the session was 'Towards Molecular Oncology – IncoNet EaP Session'. There were 7 presentations from 6 EaP countries. Additionally, the IPPT PAN representative delivered a presentation about the experiences, results and activities carried out within IncoNet EaP project. Approximately 50 researchers attended the session.

In addition, two poster sessions were organised throughout the conference. 4 participants from 4 EaP countries presented their posters during both sessions.

The strength of the session was the presentation of a detailed panorama on Molecular Oncology in the Eastern Partnership Countries. The session provided an excellent opportunity for networking and opened possibilities for collaboration with other EU countries. Most participants underlined that similar activities should be carried out in the future.
