European Cancer Congress, Amsterdam (27 Sept – 1 Oct)

This autumn, Amsterdam will host the biennial European Cancer Congress with a wide-ranging programme encompassing everything from basic, applied and translational research to practice, treatment, care, prevention and advocacy for cancer patients. This is European oncology's premier multidisciplinary meeting and it will provide a forum for discussion of the latest developments in research and in the clinic.

Key to the congress is dynamic collaboration between specialties: its strapline is 'Reinforcing Multidisiplinarity'. It's a theme close to the heart of co-scientific chair, John Yarnold and here he tells Helen Saul why something we've been talking about for so many years, still needs to be emphasised.
