Our research at the ESMO Congress 2023

18 Oct 2023

This Friday marks the beginning of the ESMO Congress 2023 and our researchers from the MRC Clinical Trials Unit at UCL and our collaborators will showcase the latest work on our prostate cancer and oesophageal cancer trials.

The ESMO Congress brings together oncologists, researchers, clinicians, and professionals from around the world to discuss the latest advancements in cancer research and treatment. This year’s edition is taking place from Friday 20th to Tuesday 24th of October in Madrid, and virtually. 

Details of the presentations and posters featuring the STAMPEDE trial, the RADICALS trial, the STOPCAP M1 collaboration and the OE02 trial are summarised in the tables below.
