Dear members and colleagues,
On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to invite you to the upcoming annual meeting of the Israeli Society for Clinical Oncology and Radiation Therapy (ISCORT), which will be held in Eilat, Israel, January 8-12, 2019.
This year’s theme will be: Innovation and the Value of Cancer Care.
As you know, during the last few years we have witnessed the a rapid unfolding of the knowledge related to cancer research, targeted therapy, immune system advantages and limitations as well as deciphering toxicity. Innovations in most areas of treatment have led to an agnostic approach with a faster and more comprehensive drug approval by regulatory agencies.
Still there is much to discover, integrate and define the right approach for the patient’s disease related to the specific human being with his/her unique physiology, psychology, ethnicity, behavior and belief system. Novelty and integration will surely bring our patients to the best possible outcome.
But these exciting approaches must be placed in the context of value to the individual patient as well as society. Therefore, this year’s ISCORT program will also emphasize the value of cancer care in several aspects.
We encourage you to present original work at ISCORT in basic, translational and clinical original data. Abstracts should be submitted through the ISCORT platform until September 30, 2018.
Looking forward to a great meeting,
Salomon M Stemmer, MD
President ISCORT 2019
Valerie Semenysty, MD
Secretary, ISCORT 2019
Ben Corn, MD
Head of Radiotherapy Track
Michal Lotem, MD
