    Breakthrough: ASCO Is Coming to Asia  October 11-13, 2109 in Bangkok, Thailand

    This inaugural American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) event, in collaboration with the Thai Society of Clinical Oncology and societies across the region, represents a pivotal moment in the innovation of cancer care.  Breakthrough is an opportunity to break through our traditional constructs of oncology care and to collaborate, discuss obstacles, and leverage peer knowledge from across disciplines and fields within and outside of oncology.  Featuring speakers from across the world, covering topics that include the role of artificial intelligence in diagnostics and therapeutics; innovative approaches to diagnostics and surveillance through the use of new technologies and biochemical markers; the next generation of robotic surgery and novel therapeutics including targeted therapies, immunotherapy, and personalized vaccines; the ethics of innovation; and social media and telehealth. Session formats are fully interactive, with the audience serving a vital role in this learning ecosystem.  To learn more, visit breakthrough.asco.org.  Registration rates are here https://meetings.asco.org/breakthrough/registration
