The Melanoma World Society (MWS) is the successor organization to the WHO Melanoma Group. The latter established the World Congress of Melanoma in the years 1985–2005, conducted trials and other projects with melanoma patients. The WHO melanoma group was disbanded in 2005, as WHO did no longer financially support such expert groups. MWS was initiated at the 8th World Congress of Melanoma 2013 in Hamburg, founded in June 2014 in Munich, and registered in January 2016.
The First MWS International Educational Symposium – Skin Cancer Update 2017 is the first of a series of educational meetings organized under the auspices of the Melanoma World Society. It is intended to organize the meeting every year in different countries.
International and national key opinion leaders on skin cancer will be invited to give an overview throughout specified presentations, to present latest clinical trial results, and to discuss on exciting new drugs, technologies and methods of treatment with the audience. The lively interaction of clinicians, as well as experts in translational and basic research, and representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, guarantees a successful outcome for every participant.
In addition to the scientific value of this meeting, every participant may seize the given opportunity to interact with experts in a familiar setting in one of the most interesting cities of South Africa.
Please join us for this event and submit your own studies and case presentations as free communications and as posters.
We look forward to welcoming you in Cape Town in March 2017!
