Free Public Talk on Neuroendocrine Tumors

CNETS is pleased to announce that it is organising another free seminar to be held in Singapore on 3 April 2009.

"The Evolution of Diagnostic and Treatment Options for Carcinoid and Neuroendocrine Patients"
Presented by Professor Dr. Larry Kvols


In his landmark article for the first issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology in 1983, Dr. C.G. Moertel concluded:

“The patient with carcinoid tumor should not be a fascinating curio for grand rounds exhibition. He should be a focal point for research involving an experienced, multidisciplinary clinical team supported by devoted basic scientists. If our patient resources and efforts can be concentrated in this manner, the carcinoid should be a strong candidate for the next medically curable cancer.”

Dr. Kvols is an expert in carcinoid disease who worked with Dr. Moertel for many years at the Mayo Clinic, and will share with us how the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors has evolved in the past 25 years.


Dr. KvolsSpeaker Biography - Larry K. Kvols is a Professor of Interdisciplinary Oncology and Head of the Neuroendocrinology Section at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa Florida.  Prior to joining Moffitt, Dr. Kvols was CEO and Director of the University of New Mexico Cancer Research and Treatment Center.

He was Professor of Oncology at the Mayo Medical  School and the Mayo Clinic.  His research interests are focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors, for which he is world-renowned.
