MSK Kids Experts to Present Notable Research at the International Society of Paediatric Oncology’s 2019 Annual Meeting


Pediatric oncologists from around the world will gather in Lyon, France, from October 23 through 26, for the International Society of Paediatric Oncology’s annual meeting. Featuring new research and important discoveries — many led by MSK Kids researchers — the meeting will highlight the latest in the fields of pediatric oncology, including blood cancer, sarcoma, Wilms’ tumor, genomics, and neuroblastoma.

MSK Kids, Memorial Sloan Kettering’s pediatric program, is dedicated to the children, young adults, and families facing childhood cancer. As pioneers in research, MSK Kids physicians and scientists are working to develop and deliver more-effective strategies to prevent, treat, and ultimately, cure childhood cancer — for patients at MSK Kids and those everywhere.

MSK Kids experts are available to comment on notable research presented at the meeting, including precision medicine, immunotherapy, genomics, radiation therapy and more. For more information and to set up interviews or access photos and video, email Rebecca Williams at [email protected].
