On Monday, June 28, 2021, CIVIS organizes the webinar “European Cholangiocarcinoma Network: A pan-European multidisciplinary project to fight cholangiocarcinoma”. Speaker within the conference is Vincenzo Cardinale MD, PhD, Associate Professor of Gastroenterology at Sapienza University of Rome.
The event, part of the “Cups & Cakes” Web Seminars, will take place between 10:00-11:00 (CET) on Zoom.
The European Cholangiocarcinoma Network aimed to dissect the heterogeneity of cholangiocarcinoma and to conduct correlation studies among multiple registries of data which investigate different aspects of this malignancy. In particular, registries of clinical, histological, radiological, and molecular data are under construction and will be the solid basis for unprecedented correlation studies necessary for a profound knowledge of the paramount heterogeneity of this malignancy which is considered the main obstacle for an effective precision and personalized medicine.
CIVIS has been established as a University that reaches from the local level to the international dimension, focused on responding to local needs, contributing to regional development strategies and addressing global challenges. The development of Research and Innovation (R&I), as an integral component of its educational mission, has been part of the CIVIS mission from the very beginning.
It is in this perspective that RIS4CIVIS has been elaborated and now operates. The overall objective is to produce an integrated, long-term R&I Strategy that, will over time enable the constituent members of the CIVIS European University to seamlessly integrate their know-how, expertise and resources in the service of Research and Innovation that effectively addresses current and future societal challenges, at local, regional and international level.
As part of the activities developed to reach this objective, the Cups&Cakes meetings aim to create a discussion forum for researchers to connect and get an overview of what is happening in other partner universities on a specific topic. In the longer term, these exchanges also aim to foster exchanges and develop potential collaborations within the CIVIS Alliance.
These Cups&Cakes will be scheduled for one hour and will consist of two phases:
– A 40-minutes presentation of current research work chosen by the speaker (including a 5-minute introduction of general expertise and work in progress within the university on the topic of interest).
– Open discussion of about 20 minutes.
These meetings will take place on Mondays every two weeks from 10h00 to 11h00. Each partner University, in turns, will have the opportunity to present to the CIVIS Community a subject of their research.
