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 and study coordination. 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 meet bi-monthly 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.
