Event Overview
Welcome message:

The Global Cardio-Oncology Summit 2017 is co-hosted the British Cardio-Oncology Society and the British Cardiovascular Society. This year’s summit will be co-chaired by Dr. Alexander Lyon, BHF Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Brompton Hospital, and Dr. Susannah Stanway, Consultant Medical Oncologist at the Royal Marsden Hospital, in London, UK.


This summit models a leading-edge interdisciplinary approach to preventative and targeted medicine in cardio-oncology. This important field of study, aimed at understanding cardiac complications of oncology treatments, has gained a growing interest from a number of healthcare providers including oncologists, cardiologists, radiologists, nurses, pharmacists, and basic scientists.


The Global Cardio-Oncology Summit will feature the latest research and clinical guidelines in the multidisciplinary field of cardio-oncology. We invite abstract submissions for the Global Cardio-Oncology Summit on the prevention, management and treatment of cardiac complications related to oncology therapy.
