Medical oncologists, radiation oncologist, interventional radiologists, surgical oncologist, hepatologists, internists, as well as residents, nurse practitioners and pharmacists, with an interest in HCC, will gather virtually to share best practices and review challenging cases with multidisciplinary panels.

This informative conference provides a unique opportunity for attendees to participate in presentations from international experts in the field of Multidisciplinary Hepatocellular Carcinoma. The scope of this meeting will highlight both recent research findings elucidating the pathophysiology of these diverse diseases, as well as changes in therapeutic advances that have had a large impact in the management of our patients.
