ESES 2023

Dear colleagues and friends,

it is a great pleasure and privilege for me to invite you to the 10th ESES postgraduate meeting in Mainz, May 18th to 20th 2023. I’m confident, that restriction for face-to-face meetings due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic will be history by then. We all will yearn for the possibility of professional discussion, networking, research initiatives, and social contacts.

The meeting in Mainz will focus on “advanced endocrine malignancies”. Especially in advanced oncologic cases, we are faced with many uncertainties; the opinions about indications for and limits of surgery are very diverse. As usual, ESES working groups will prepare profound statements based on in-depth literature reviews and research data for malignancies of thyroid, adrenals, and the gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine system. Of course, original research results will also be presented at the meeting.

“Golden Mainz” (in Roman times: aurea moguntia) offers great opportunities to make your stay pleasant. The city is located at the Rhine river between two of Germany’s most renowned wine regions, the Rheingau to the North and Rhinehessen to the South. The world-renowned Mosel valley is a short car trip away. There are countless castles, abbeys, Roman ruins, beer gardens and traditional wine taverns to be found in Mainz and vicinity. In the city, among the interesting sights to visit are the dome, the Gutenberg museum with the Gutenberg Bibel, church St. Stephan with the blue luminous stained glass windows of the artist Marc Chagall, the ruins of an Isis temple, and the museum of ancient seafaring.

Hoping to welcome many of you to Mainz in May 2023!

On behalf of the local organizing committee,

Thomas J. Musholt
