Event Details

STREAMING to the meeting is available HERE.

Rapid advances in cancer immunotherapy (I-O) offer novel treatment opportunities for patients. It also creates new challenges for clinicians aiming to offer the most suitable treatment based on a precise diagnosis and an informed decision-making process.

To stimulate the exchange with international colleagues and to learn from experiences gained in other Cancer Centers, Oslo Cancer Cluster is building on the success of the I-O Educational Seminars for Clinicians from 2015 with a new I-O Educational Meeting series beginning October 2019.

Clinicians and translational researchers are invited to attend this meeting to address different aspects along the treatment course – from diagnosis to treatment and follow-up of cancer patients.  Participants will have the opportunity to meet with international experts presenting recent progress and clinical implications.


Due to limited seating capacity, all seating on-site is reserved for clinicians and translational researchers (Please register by completing the form below).
