The first EACR-ESMO joint conference on Liquid Biopsies conference took place at the historic Centro Congressi Giovannia XXIII in Bergamo, Italy from 15-17 May 2019.
I was delighted that I could attend my first liquid biopsy meeting ever, especially because I was one of the recipients of the EACR-Worldwide Cancer Research meeting bursary. During these three days I got to hear the latest advances in the field of liquid biopsy from top notch researchers, I presented my Melgen research project, and got to meet young scientists with similar research interests like mine.
I gained a lot of new knowledge from the scientific sessions and from interacting with participants during the poster sessions. I had the opportunity to present my findings in a spotlight session where I pitched the most important findings of my project.
