About this section

The Oncology Section’s purpose is to enable all those investigating the aetiology, epidemiology and the treatment of all forms of cancer, to meet together regularly so that they may profit mutually from each other's knowledge and experience.

Section Council members

Section meetings and conferences are usually organised by members of the Section Council, led by the Section President and often in collaboration with specialist societies.
