26 Sep - 30 Sep 2014, Madrid, Spain

ESMO 2014 Congress

The theme for ESMO 2014 was ‘Precision Medicine in Cancer Care.’ Whether you are a medical or surgical oncologist or a radiation oncologist, immunologist or pathologist, practising precision medicine means we are all working towards a common goal – improved patient outcomes. For your convenience and due to the large quantity of information coming from the ESMO 2014 congress, we have split the presentations up by main congress topic to allow you to find the information you need more easily.

Here, you will find the abstracts, posters, PDF presentation and webcasts from ESMO 2014 to the extent the presenters have consented to release their contribution or a slightly modified version thereof. Please, note that the publication of these presentations is a courtesy of the originating authors and is for personal educational purposes only.
