Scientific and Educational Program


What are we planing?

We are preparing a multidisciplinary program covering many topics, including:

- Physiology of the thymus at different stages of development

- Pathogenesis of thymic diseases

- Thymic carcinomas - how do they differ from thymomas?

- Novel strategies in thymic tumors - what's on the horizon?

- When, why and how to biopsy a mediastinal lesion?

- Treatment options for pleural metastases

- From history to the future - from Professor Masaoka's classification to innovations in the diagnosis and treatment of thymomas - targeted therapies, proton radiotherapy, AI-supported digital technologies in the diagnosis of mediastinal tumors

- and much, much more!

Of course, as usual, we will invite you to join the discussion during the clinical-radiological-pathological TUMOR BOARD

On the last day we additionally plan:

- NEUROLOGY WORKSHOP designed for all conference participants regardless of specialty, during which we will better understand the practical aspects of diagnosis and treatment of neurological autoimmune diseases accompanying thymic tumors

- Meetings of ITMIG Committees, to which we invite all ITMIG members to think together about the future strategy of our Society
