SIOP Europe AYA Committee

The SIOP Europe AYA Committee recently convened to set some new objectives for the coming months and years. As in past years, the Committee will organise a session at the SIOP Europe Annual Meeting. The session will be built around the exciting topic of genomics of AYA cancers. 

Together with the SIOP Europe Educational Committee, a 2-day virtual Course, aimed at anyone working with AYA will be developed. The members of the SIOP Europe AYA Committee will also develop a proposal to collaborate with the ECTGs about improving the inclusion of AYA in clinical trials. A proposal is also being developed to work on an AYA Certificate or recommendation for what is needed for the AYA population. More information about these projects will be available in the coming months.

The SIOP Europe AYA Committee provides strategic and direction-forming input into existing networks and groups such as ENTAC and the ESMO SIOPE AYA Working Group. It liaises with professional and patient organisations to bring AYA issues onto the political agenda. For recent publications and more information, we invite you to read:
