Welcome to the newly established “European Hereditary Tumor Group”, which has evolved from the former “Mallorca Group”.
As you all know, the Mallorca Group was initiated in 2006 by Hans Vasen and Gabriela Moeslein and was a very active network of specialists working in different fields involved with prevention, diagnosis and treatment of hereditary tumour syndromes. The focus was laid on gastrointestinal predisposition to tumours but may now evolve to embrace others.
The group has defined the aims as:
- To conduct collaborative studies
- To establish guidelines
- To set up databases
We welcome everybody interested to get actively involved and join us in the effort of improving our knowledge in the field of hereditary predisposition to cancer! Also we focus on implementing this knowledge in improved clinical care. This effort embraces all clinical disciplines!
The working group format as a most interactive platform was most well-received during the first meeting of the EHTG in Mallorca in 2016.
In 2017 we will support the InSiGHT meeting in Florence (Chairpersons Maurizio Genuardi and Luigi Ricciardello) and host only a one day meeting on July 5 (the day prior to the actual InSiGHT meeting).
