2023, Zurich, Switzerland

15. Charles Rodolphe Brupbacher Symposium

Breakthroughs in Cancer Research and Therapy

With great regret, the Foundation Board has decided not to hold the 15th Brupbacher Symposium in 2021 due to the worldwide pandemic situation and the associated travel restrictions. The protection of the health of all participants has clear priority. The 15th Brupbacher Symposium will therefore be postponed to late January/early February 2023. The Foundation Board wishes all past and future participants: Stay well. We look forward to seeing you again in 2023.
