Symposium Thorax Oncology

It is our sincere pleasure to invite you once again for our annual symposium in ’t Pand in Ghent on Saturday, January 19, 2013. Several innovations in thoracic oncology have recently been brought forward: it is good custom to be critical before implementing them in routine clinical practice. We have invited a choice of (inter)national speakers to share their expertise and be questioned by you.

Please book already now this important meeting in your 2013 agenda.

We all wish you a fresh start in the new year and expect to meet and greet in historical downtown Ghent.

On behalf of the Lung Oncological Network Ghent (LONG)

Frederic De Ryck, Liesbeth Ferdinande, Robert Gosselin, Yolande Lievens, Marleen Praet, Veerle Surmont, Katrien Vandecasteele, Jan van Meerbeeck, Karim Vermaelen, Frank Vermassen

PS: January is sales season in Ghent. Why not come for a day trip?
