MVA Oncology Network Meeting – Providing cutting-edge research and cancer care for the region

Medicon Valley Alliance, together with Lund University Cancer Center (LUCC) and Skåne University Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre (SUHCCC), has the pleasure of inviting you to the 13th MVA Oncology Network meeting.

In May 2022, Skåne University Hospital was accredited as a Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC). This demonstrates that SUHCCC is one of Europe’s leading cancer centers with highly competent staff and cutting-edge cancer treatments. This opens up new opportunities for both international and national collaborations.

The event will focus on how SUHCC and LUCC provide cancer care and manage research of the highest international quality based on patient needs, research-based therapies and innovations.

Please join us and learn about the successful research and care conducted in Lund that contribute to the oncology ecosystem in the Öresund region. We look forward to a discussion about further collaboration between academia, healthcare and industry within the field.
