Novel translational data will be presented, some for the first time.

During the conference, delegates will learn about:

• the biology of ovarian cancer
• progress made in the early detection of ovarian cancer
• the pros and cons of treatment modalities in the upfront setting
• the evolving role of PARP inhibitors in ovarian cancer
• the current evidence for immunotherapy treatments in ovarian cancer
• rare ovarian cancers.

The keynote on cell context, mutation and ovarian cancer control will be given by Dr David Huntsman, Dr Chew Wei Memorial Professor of Gynaecologic Oncology and Professor, Departments of Pathology and Lab Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver.

The packed programme will bring together a panel of international speakers from the UK, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland and France and will include Professor Dipanjan Chowdhury, Chief Division of Radiation and Genomic Stability, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Professor, Harvard Medical School, Boston, who will discuss breast cancer gene (BRCA) mutation signatures.
