Each year national and international experts in medical, radiation and surgical oncology come together at the ANZGOG Annual Scientific Meeting.

Our Annual Scientific Meeting focuses on developments in clinical trial research in gynaecological cancers. The meeting is an opportunity for ANZGOG members and international guests to exchange information on current global trends in gynaecological cancer treatments, latest research practices and future research objectives. It is also an opportunity to share knowledge and ideas with national and international authorities in the field of gynaecological cancer research.

Members are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible, to network and share knowledge and foster new collaborations.

The 2019 ASM recently took place at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth from 20th to 23rd March, inspired by the theme ‘Radical Treatments for Gynaecological Cancers: hope or hype’. With 260 delegates, this was the largest ANZGOG ASM to date. One of the main outcomes from the meeting was the unquestionable spirit of collaboration. Through exceptional presentations, specialised workshops and networking events, this year’s ASM fostered exciting discussion resulting in an unprecedented degree of new research concepts. Delegates were fortunate to hear from three world leading specialists:

  • Professor Christina Fotopoulou (Gynaecological Oncologist from Imperial College London Healthcare Trust)
  • Dr Umesh Mahantshetty (Radiation Oncologist from Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai, India)
  • Professor Anna de Fazio (Chair, Translational Cancer Research at the Centre for Cancer Research, Westmead Institute Medical Research, Sydney),

2020 marks ANZGOG’s 20th anniversary and the ASM in Melbourne promises to be a fantastic occasion! To find out more about the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting, email our Membership Officer, Heshani Nesfield, at hnesfield@anzgog.org.au.
