Not in Madrid: The 2020 virtual congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (#ESMO20) is underway and in this post we’re taking a look at some of the highlights from Friday at ESMO20, a day when we’ve seen a raft of posters and mini-orals released for on-demand viewing.
With COVID-19 rates rising across Europe, ESMO are to be congratulated for pivoting to a virtual meeting that allows the sharing of knowledge and advancement of the field. It was definitely the right decision in light of the ongoing travel challenges, quarantines, not to mention restrictions on large groups in many countries.
For our daily ESMO20 coverage – just as we would if we had been in Madrid – we’ve been listening to some of the on-demand mini-oral presentations and associated discussions, with a view to picking out and commenting on a few that stood out for us.
As always we’re approaching this from a cancer new product development perspective, and our choice is always a balance of emerging new targets and drugs, as well as following those we’ve previously written about.
