PRELIMINARY PROGRAMME Masterclass in molecular oncology 29-31 January 2015 - Prague, Czech Republic Dear delegate, A warm welcome to all attending the “Masterclass in molecular oncology”. I would like to inform you that as of 28 April 2014 the name of our Foundation changed to EXCEMED – Excellence in Medical Education. The name change will not impact your registration status in this or any other Foundation event. This transition marks an exciting point in the evolution of the Foundation. We are proud to have provided world-class education to thousands of healthcare professionals over the past four decades - as a result, the Foundation has become synonymous with delivery excellence and highimpact CME. As we further develop our scientific and geographical presence it is important to us that our name accurately reflects the independent nature of the education we provide; EXCEMED symbolises our enduring mission to support the best possible outcomes for patients through the medical education we offer. We take pride in our complete dedication to the provision of CME - it is our sole focus and our passion. I wish you an inspiring and successful learning experience here in Prague. Yours sincerely, Rachel Clark CEO, EXCEMED 1 Aim Precision medicine in oncology is an evolving landscape. In recent years new insights have been gained into driver genomic alterations responsible for cancer progression. The identification of a growing number of molecular targets and the availability of specific targeted therapies are fueling the clinical research and rapidly changing clinical practice. The aim of this masterclass in molecular oncology is to describe the basic principles of cancer genomics, techniques in molecular biology and translational research. This live educational intensive course will provide insights into the new taxonomy of cancer, the molecular pathways relevant for therapy and the methodology in molecular diagnosis of cancer. Educational Format This highly interactive course is designed to deliver effective knowledge in molecular oncology. The aim is to make the expertise of recognized key opinion leaders available to the learners, providing them with the opportunity to clarify doubts and solve uncertainties in the field of molecular oncology. For this purpose, the educational format will be based on a series of lessons, followed by direct interactions among experts and learners, during the curricular activities in the meeting rooms and outside. Learning objectives After attending this masterclass in molecular oncology learners will be able to: • Define relevant molecular pathways in oncology • Distinguish genome analysis methods • Illustrate personalized treatment options for cancer patients Target audience Medical oncologists who want to improve their knowledge in molecular biology platforms for targeted therapy and drug discovery. 2 Accreditation An application will be made to the EACCME® for CME accreditation of this EXCEMED live educational course “Masterclass in molecular oncology” to be held on 29-31 January 2015 in Prague, Czech Republic. An application has been made to the ESMO for CME accreditation. EXCEMED adheres to the principles of the Good CME Practice Group (gCMEp).
