Transplant oncology is a new concept encompassing multiple disciplines of transplantation medicine and oncology to take hepatobiliary cancer treatment and research to the next level. The Consensus Conference in Rotterdam will convene worldwide experts and opinion leaders in transplant surgery, radiology and oncology, hepatology and immunology to discuss the frontiers and future perspectives of multidisciplinary management of hepatobiliary malignancies.

The main topics will include liver transplantation for hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, colorectal and neuroendocrine liver metastases, pediatric malignancy, therapies for cancer recurrence after liver transplantation and role of novel chemotherapeutic and biological agents to enhance transplantation outcomes.

After a morning of inspiring lectures, delegates will join afternoon working groups with the task of finding solutions and suggesting guidelines for topic-related issues.
