2nd International Symposium on Advances in Circulating Tumor Cells (ACTC)

Oncology Meeting Resources

08 Oct - 11 Oct, Crete, Greece

The ACTC meeting focused on the potential of circulating tumour cells (CTC) in liquid biopsy, bringing together researchers and clinicians to discuss the practical implementations of CTCs and translate basic research into clinical practice.
