The 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), of the Medical Oncology Group of Australia Incorporated (MOGA)-the peak national body for Australian medical oncologists and the medical oncology profession, and a speciality society of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians-will present a challenging and far-reaching scientific program. The theme of the 2017 ASM is Real World Oncology: Translating Discovery in to Practice and the meeting will be held at the Pullman Albert Park Hotel, Melbourne, 2-4 August.

The Planning Committee have developed an innovative scientific and academic program that explores many of the contemporary challenges and advances in medical oncology research, discovery and clinical practice. The program has a strong focus on breast, colorectal, geriatric oncology, supportive care and genomics as well as innovations and implementations in both research and clinical practice across other major cancer streams. The ASM has grown exponentially in both scope and quality over the last decade and, it is very much our intention to continue to grow the meeting as the peak national professional gathering by incorporating a wide range of topline, international and national speakers, focussing on current and emergent themes that have high relevance to oncology research and practice as well as the introduction of new meeting partners to strengthen the Association’s positioning nationally, regionally and globally.

I am pleased to announce that we have secured four international speakers for the meeting program including Professor Fatima Cardoso from the Champalimaud Clinical Center, Lisbon, Portugal, Professor Hyman Muss from Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, North Carolina, USA, Professor Sebastian Stintzing from the University of Munich, Germany and Professor Matthew Ellis from the Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, USA. These distinguished speakers will provide state of art perspectives on scientific and research trends as well as share their specialist tumour expertise in special one-off presentations. The program will also include a large complement of Australian experts presenting in major symposia and sessions. The program will also feature educational and networking opportunities for Australia medical oncology trainees, young oncology consultants and senior clinicians.

On behalf of the ASM Planning Committee I invite you to consider joining our professional colleagues, international and national presenters in Melbourne this August. We know you will find the 2017 ASM a rewarding and valuable professional experience.
