David Cunningham

Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton, UK


An overview of current and future clinical trials developed within or adopted by the upper gastrointestinal tract cancers clinical study group portfolio will be presented as an introduction. This session will then include presentations from invited speakers covering diverse topics including the evidence base of prevention in upper gastrointestinal tract cancers, an overview of neuroendocrine tumours, and functional genomics and proteomics in pancreatic cancer. We have also selected three abstracts for presentation, which will further illustrate the high quality and scope of research currently undertaken in the UK.
