The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has announced the studies that will be highlighted in the 2020 ASTRO Annual Meeting press program. The press program will feature studies on cancer treatment advances and discussions of topical issues including COVID-19 and racial representation in radiation therapy clinical trials. Researchers will present their findings in three news briefings to be held via live webcasts on October 26 and 27.
The news briefing schedule is as follows:
Monday, October 26, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. ET
Tuesday, October 27, 12:00 – 12:30 p.m. ET
Tuesday, October 27, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET – Special COVID-19 Session
Originally planned as an on-site meeting in Miami, the 2020 ASTRO Annual Meeting was moved to a web-based platform due to safety concerns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The meeting, Global Oncology: Radiation Therapy in a Changing World, will feature more than 2,500 accepted abstracts including reports from the latest clinical trials; more than 120 expert panels on topics including global oncology, health disparities and the coronavirus; and an immersive attendee experience in a virtual convention center.Back To Top
