With great pleasure we would like to invite you all to Utrecht for the symposium entitled “It is time to individualize multimodality treatment for esophageal cancer”, to be held on 8-9 September 2016.

The rise of multimodality treatment approaches, genomics, and innovative imaging modalities in esophageal cancer dramatically increased the interactions between the involved specialties. We believe now the time has come to work together to find the best treatment approaches tailored to the individual patient. During this symposium, state-of-the-art strategies and near-future prospects in individualizing treatment for esophageal cancer will be discussed by bringing together top-level international experts from across Europe and the United States.

At the end of the symposium we will celebrate the PhD defense of Peter S.N. van Rossum on his thesis entitled “Towards individualized treatment for esophageal cancer”.

We very much look forward to welcoming you in Utrecht!
