We are pleased to inform that the International Benchmarking of Childhood Cancer Survival by Stage, also known as BENCHISTA Project is holding its first in-person meeting of the Project Working Group (PWG) on Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th June 2023.

The meeting will be held at the Aula Magna - Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori (INT) in Milan, Italy. 

The meeting aims to gather the members of the PWG, including tumour-specific clinical experts and out parent and patient representatives, together with members of our Advisory Board, to hear and discuss the first results of the population-based data analyses, the strengths and limitations of their interpretation, and to plan further tumour-specific analyses according to availability of the non-stage prognostic factors and other optional variables. 

We also wish to discuss future perspectives and plans for grant applications to support a potential next phase of the project. 

Looking forward to seeing you in Milan!
