Y-EHTG Dragon’s Den Pitch: Pitch your new study or project (3+7)

Following last year’s success, we would like to welcome researchers of all stages to pitch their research ideas at the EHTG conference this year. Researchers will have the opportunity to present their proposals, obtain feedback and build collaborations with other researchers of similar or complementary interests. Projects on all aspects (clinical or basic science) of hereditary tumour syndromes are welcome. The three best proposals will be selected for presentation (3 minutes) and given the opportunity for questions (7 minutes).
This year we have a new abstract category, "My most challenging/interesting case". Four best abstracts in this category will be selected for a presentation at the plenary session on Day 2.
