Meet the author
Publications in peer-reviewed journals are a major source for keeping up with the latest developments in your field. However, you may not always have sufficient time to study (difficult) publications thoroughly and to determine the impact on your clinical practice. To support you, MEDtalks Oncology has developed a new program format: the Quarterly Focus. This innovative program brings an expert panel and authors of relevant, selected publications together to explain and discuss the new data.
In this second episode of the Quarterly Focus on Genitourinary Cancer, two pivotal, international publications on Renal Cell Carcinoma from the past few months will be clarified by one of the authors and will be thoroughly discussed by an expert panel including the author. The program will give you the possibility to gain more insight into the selected publications.
The expert panel consist of:
Prof. John Haanen, MD, PhD, medical oncologist, Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam
Hans Westgeest, MD, medical oncologist, Amphia Ziekenhuis, Breda
Astrid van der Veldt, MD, PhD, medical oncologist, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam
Invited speaker: Kathleen Mahoney, MD, PhD, medical oncologist, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston
