We are pleased to share CECOB 2022, our oncology clinical trials convention in Barcelona

Since achieving the best care for cancer patients requires excellent clinical research, we have prepared a first-class scientific program.

Throughout the day, you will have the chance to attend sessions in person or through streaming , which we have distributed into four varied segments. These segments will address clinical research from the point of view of various renowned speakers. In addition, new oncology research projects will be presented, and one will be selected for an award.

CECOB 2022 will be a meeting point for healthcare professionals, patients, industry, and associations and an excellent opportunity to learn and share experiences in the field of oncology clinical trials.

We look forward to seeing you there!
