Welcome to Montpellier

We warmly welcome you to the 11th International Symposium on Minimal Residual Cancer in Montpellier in the south of France.

These international ISMRC meetings started in 1996 and have established themselves, every other year, as a premier event focusing on Minimal Residual Cancer in patients with solid tumors.

The MONTPELLIER ISMRC meeting is a great opportunity to gather during three days, researchers from academia and industry to share information about the most recent technical developments, clinical trials and late breaking news.

The 2018 meeting in Montpellier is organized together with the established EU-IMI consortium CANCER-ID and brings together basic and clinical researchers from academia and companies.
