Introduction from the ESVONC president


Dear colleagues and friends,

Welcome to the annual ESVONC congress being held for the first time in Lyon, France!

We will have a great program with state of the art information from different fields of veterinary and comparative oncology mixing together the recent knowledge on basic sciences and clinical oncology.

The themed sessions will be a focus on immunotherapy, THE up-to-date subject in human oncology and subsequently in veterinary oncology as well ! The second themed session will be on head and neck cancers with comparative aspects in human oncology as usual !

Living in this beautifull city for many years, I wanted, with my team, to organize a great social program ! History is everywhere in this town and is revealed in the traces that time has left behind for our collective enrichment ! Do you remember that Lyon is the place where the first veterinary school was created 250 years ago by Claude Bourgelat ?

Do you know that Lyon is THE city of gastronomy and french flair ?

Don’t miss it !

ESVONC Annual congress is a place for social events and sharings: the venue will be at the wonderfull and pleasant Congress City Center surrounded by a Parc and the welcome reception will be in the first veterinary school that became the National Music school… Gorgeous!

On Friday evening, we will organize our annual gala dinner with some surprise !

And we can promise you one thing : this friendly congress in Lyon will be memorable!


The ESVONC President,
