“AI has great application and tremendous promise in oncology. Through this collaboration, I look forward to sharing our expertise and learning from colleagues as we explore this area further,” said Toni Choueiri.

“This second edition of the Transatlantic Exchanges around AI will be just as exciting; the level of speakers is impressive. Sharing knowledge and advances on this constantly evolving topic is essential to lead its development and its dissemination for the benefit of patients living with cancer,” said Prof. Fabrice André, director of research, Gustave Roussy.

“One year after a first successful session focused on immuno-oncology in Boston in May 2022, the Transatlantic Exchanges Conference is back, this year in Paris, dedicated to AI and Data Science in Oncology. No doubt that the panel of distinguished speakers from both sides of the Atlantic will deliver top notch lectures in this fast-moving field. From imaging to pathology and innovative therapeutic approaches, AI opens new avenues in the cancer field. We are looking forward to learning the latest news for the patients’ benefit”, said Prof. Gérard Friedlander, chairman of L’Institut Servier Scientific Committee.

This Transatlantic Exchanges Program is part of a two-year Collaboration agreement between Dana-Farber, Gustave Roussy with the support of L’Institut Servier that includes annual conferences, alternating between Boston and Paris, and a fellowship program for four young researchers, post-doctoral students from Gustave Roussy, who are hosted in research labs of Dana-Farber. The 2022 meeting held in Boston focused on Immuno-Oncology.

This meeting is open to healthcare professionals with an interest in oncology via our delegate engagement hub (leveraging Medscape Global Medical Affairs). Virtual registration is now open here.
