ESMO 2016: Video Highlights

Watch video interviews with key opinion leaders on the latest studies presented during the ESMO 2016 Congress in Copenhagen. 

This video content is put together by Andrés Cervantes, ESMO 2016 Scientific Chair and Jean-Yves Douillard, ESMO 2016 Educational Chair in close collaboration with chairs of various congress tracks.

Ten videos range from general ESMO 2016 Congress highlights to key take home messages on findings presented in lung cancer, melanoma, breast cancer, renal-cell cancer, urothelial cancer, head and neck cancer, hepatocellular cancer, colorectal cancer, soft tissue sarcoma, patient advocacy, as well as supportive and palliative care.

Each video features an introduction by track chair or designated video highlight presenter, followed by key findings digested by actual presenters of the landmark studies presented at ESMO 2016 Congress.
