Upper GI and Lower GI Working Parties

The AGITG’s Upper GI and Lower GI Working Parties represent the disciplines of medical oncology, surgery, radiation oncology, statistics, translational science, study coordination and allied health. The Upper GI Working Party focuses on cancers of the oesophagus, gallbladder and pancreas, stomach and liver, while the Lower GI Working Party looks at cancer of the bowel, rectum and anus.

The Working Parties will meet bi-monthly. Face-to-face meetings will be held twice a year, in May (coinciding with the Annual General Meeting) and in November.

The Working Parties meet to:

  • Identify gaps in research activities;
  • Develop and/or facilitate new clinical research concepts;
  • Review the scientific merit of research proposals;
  • Explore funding and feasibility opportunities in liaison with the Operations Executive Committee;
  • Nominate Principal Investigators;
  • Nominate Trial Management Committee members

Your Invitation

We invite you to develop your research with the AGITG through the Upper & Lower GI Working Parties.
