L’annuale convegno scientifico dell’Associazione Internazionale dei Registri Tumori (IACR), che si doveva tenere a Noumea (Nuova Caledonia) il prossimo ottobre, è stato cancellato per i problemi intervenuti con la pandemia Covid-19.

In quell’occasione veniva assegnato il Premio Enrico Anglesio ad un giovane ricercatore che presentava un lavoro originale.
