The 5th Annual Miami Thyroid Oncology Symposium was carried out virtually on March 18th and 19th, 2022
The Miami Cancer Research Center thanks our world-renowned faculty for taking part in the 5th Annual Miami Thyroid Oncology Symposium (MTOS). We are also indebted to our sponsors and everyone who supported and made MTOS 2022 possible. Please contact MTOSContact@gmail.com with any questions or suggestions.
About the Symposium
The Miami Thyroid Oncology Symposium is a scientific forum to discuss the rapidly expanding science of "Molecular Theranostics". Our approach to thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer has expanded beyond conventional diagnostics and therapeutic interventions. A broad catalog of genomic and epigenomic markers associated with thyroid cancer is now available for clinical use. The risk stratification systems that are critical for initial surgical treatment and subsequent use of radioactive iodine treatment rely more and more on distinct molecular markers, and less on traditional parameters. Genomics with molecular pathology and molecular imaging reflect the true biologic nature of the different cancer types currently defined by conventional morphologic features. The tumor differentiation/de-differentiation and clinical behavior for each individual cancer are now being defined by molecular characteristics, in addition to standard histopathology.
The first day of the symposium was held on Friday, March 18th, 2022. It was a workshop on Advances in Radioactive Iodine (RAI) Theranostics, which provided in-depth approaches for RAI-indifferent cancers. The plenary session on the second day of the symposium was entitled Frontiers in Thyroid Oncology. This session brought together world-renowned experts presenting and discussing the state of the Art in thyroid cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The 2022 Miami Thyroid Oncology Symposium was held virtually due to the unsettling course of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this format, we had more than 600 registrants and reached more than 20 countries worldwide.
Miami Thyroid Oncology Symposium is organized annually by the Miami Cancer Research Center (MCRC). Miami Cancer Research Center is a scientific and charitable organization that performs and supports cancer research, organizes educational events, and provides support for cancer care at institutional and individual levels. The mission of the MCRC is to take part in the global fight against cancer through research, education, and patient care support.
