25 Years of Medical Oncology


Medical Oncology at Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc is 25 years old!

On this occasion, we have the pleasure to invite you to our 25th anniversary symposium Friday 13 September in the Auditoire Maisin at UCL.

The treatment of our cancer patients has dramatically changed. We have moved from a one-size-fits-all treatment to personalized cancer care. We have put together a nice program that will not only highlight some of the major advances performed in the treatment of cancer patients during these last 25 years but also the achievements of our department of medical oncology in cancer care, research, and teaching.

This scientific meeting will also look towards the future and outline some important challenges that we will face in the next decade like personalized cancer care, geriatric oncology and translational/clinical cancer research.

So please join us for this symposium and celebrate our 25th anniversary!
