Robert W. Holloway MD, Medical Director of FHGO, recently participated as an invited speaker at a symposium “Highlights in Ovarian Cancer” organized by the University of Rome, Italy (June 18-19, 2013). His presentation entitled “Recent Advances in Ovarian Cancer: Best of SGO and ASCO Conferences 2013”, was well received. About 150 delegates participated in this event with speakers from the U.S. premier institutions such as Stanford University and Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NY.
After the symposium, Dr. Holloway spent an extra day and performed radical debulking surgery on a patient with ovarian cancer with Professor Roberto Angioli and his fellows at the institution. It was a great exchange experience of our surgical skills and tips-and-tricks. Drs. Holloway and Angioli had mutually rewarding discussions and plan to collaborate on some clinical research projects and perhaps cross-train fellows and young gynecologic oncologists.
