POSTPONED – MVA Oncology Network meeting


Welcome to the MVA Oncology Network and our 9th meeting!
The future of oncology – treatments in multiple combinations.

Combination therapies are upcoming within oncology R&D, but what is the right strategy for their development in the early stages? At this meeting we will look into the optimal design of early clinical trials, the challenges of value and pricing-setting of combination treatments, and get more insight in the patient experience.  

Medicon Valley Alliance, together with one of our members – AbbVie – welcomes you to the MVA Oncology Network and our 9th meeting where we will discuss the future of oncology – treatments in multiple combinations. The meeting format will include presentations and a panel discussion, so all can actively engage.

The network
MVA Oncology Network is a professional and social network for professors, PIs and corporate level executives from the regional oncology eco-system. The network focuses on best practice, experience and current challenges for public-private collaboration and the commercialization of oncology related R&D in the Medicon Valley region.

Joining the network is free of charge and is limited to Medicon Valley Alliance members only. However, non-member organizations and companies are welcome to attend one network event to evaluate if joining the network is relevant. If so, becoming a member of Medicon Valley Alliance will automatically allow you to join the oncology network.
