Professor Frédéric Castinetti, of the DiPNET/MoPED team, is presiding the WorldMEN conference from 26 to 28 April at the Palais du Pharo, Marseille.
This long-running meeting, held annually since 1984, now encompasses a wide audience of endocrinologists, surgeons, gastroenterologists, oncologists, geneticists and researchers, all concerned by the diagnosis and management not only of the multiple endocrine neoplasia, endocrine tumor syndromes and the various (often individually rare) diseases they include. These cover Von Hippel Lindau disease, pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, pituitary tumors, neuroendocrine tumors, neurofibromatosis, calcium disorders and endocrine cancers in general.
Many other members of the DiPNET/MoPED team are involved in the conference’s success, participating in logistics, moderation and sharing results of their studies.
