This was the theme of the 9th International Gastric Cancer Congress held in Coex, Seoul, Korea from April 20-23, 2011. Four days full of special lectures, panel discussions, workshops and case conferences…bringing together experts in their fields from all around the world.
The 2011 congress included 2,000 participants representing 70 countries. We are very proud that five members of No Stomach For Cancer’s Scientific Advisory Board not only attended the congress, but were presenters in their areas of expertise.
We applaud the continuing commitment and research achievements of these distinguished scientists and physicians.
