The event will be held as part of the programme of the World-Class Research Centre for Personalized Medicine.

Scientific program

The conference will focus on the problems of vascular tumors and malformations in children, discussion of diagnostic modalities using modern imaging methods and molecular genetic research as well as the possibilities of medical therapy using targeted agents.
