MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
DUBLIN 2016 ANNUAL CONGRESS
Let’s get together with as many people as possible this year in Dublin, for the 48th SIOP Annual Meeting. Indeed, there will be a special flavor in getting together this time. We are living, all over the world, in difficult times; we are witnessing events that we thought should not be part of our daily lives; we are experiencing a sense of profound insecurity on the possibility of progressing into the future without an excess of suffering; we are hearing more and more words of hatred, of discrimination, of intolerance, of separation, of abuse of power and words of violence.

In Memoriam - Dr Alfred G Knudson

 It is an honor and a privilege for us to celebrate the life and accomplishments of a man  like Alfred Knudson, who on July 10, 2016, at the age of 93, passed away. His  observations on the genetic bases of the different incidence patterns of retinoblastoma  by age of onset informed  scientific thought in the latter 20th century. His tremendous  scientific contributions opened entirely new and very fertile fields. Read more
