Message from SIOP

APHOG and SIOP Asia plan to have the 1st Joint Scientific Meeting via SIOP "GotoMeeting" platform on October 27th 19:00-22:00 Tokyo time.
The program is very busy and the time is tight, but this joint meeting is very important for both APHOG and SIOP Asia for the future.
APHOG stands for the Asian Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Group which is a childhood cancer clinical study group of Asia. Our Asian colleagues started to talk about the necessity of a united pediatric cancer clinical study group in 2012, and we have officially founded APHOG in March, 2021.
