ERN Workshops (9)

The term endocrine cancer involves, among others, thyroid carcinoma, adrenocortical carcinoma, malignant pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas, and multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes. The recognized experts will discuss these diseases during the workshop. We focus on the current knowledge and EBM (evidence-based medicine) criteria, contemporary trends in diagnostics and treatment, differences in approach between adults and children, molecular background – possibilities of the personalized therapy, multidisciplinary management – an up-to-date approach.

The workshop aims at giving an update on molecular background and clinical management of rare endocrine malignancies.

Endocrinologists, oncologists, surgeons, radiotherapists, internists and pediatricians, pathologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists – employees of affiliated to an ERN-Full Member or affiliated Partner institution. The approximate number of participants is 70.
