ISOQOL 2020 - Anne-Sophie Darlington's quote

EORTC Quality of Life group selected abstracts at ISOQOL 2020

The 27th Annual Conference ISOQOL will take place virtually from 19 to 23 October 2020.

The EORTC have been lucky to have 12 abstracts accepted for the International Society of Quality of Life Annual Conference. This conference is one of the primer venues to have high quality research presented, and so we are very happy that the EORTC have had such a good success in 2020. Dr. Andrew Bottomley, Assistant Director and Head of the Quality of life Department says “it’s great that the EORCT has such a good publication record, and impressive to see the broad nature of the work that is being done across the EORTC”

(Please note that they are all on-demand sessions)
