InSiGHT 2021 Vision Statement

The Colon Cancer Foundation (CCF) is proud to host the 2021 International Society for Gastrointestinal Hereditary Tumours Biennial Meeting in New York City.

Working closely with the Northwell Health Cancer Institute, the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, the Office of Continuing Medical Education (Northwell CME) and with the direct participation and support of our eight New York City based academic medical centers* as well as an impressive array of genomics based biotechnology enterprises, for example, The NY Genome Center we will showcase American clinical and translational science and deploy those assets to support InSiGHT in building awareness, preventing, and effectively treating the many clinical manifestations of the Hereditary GI syndromes.  

Our vision for InSiGHT 2021 is a global clinical and translational research event focused on the hereditary gastrointestinal syndromes. We are committed to engaging young clinicians and scientists from around the world.

Hosting InSiGHT 2021 at the “Crossroads of the World” also lends itself to a unique opportunity for us to reflect on our own “Crossroads” and future. We will design a program that will allow, through content and special invited speakers, exploration of how we can globally address key issues such as promoting clinical awareness, education and research on the hereditary GI syndromes. How can we  integrate all of the continents on our planet in our efforts? How can we best provide effective enduring mentor-ship of the next generation of clinicians and scientists who will take on the clinical and scientific challenges of the hereditary GI syndromes?

Our planned program will also tackle a  very special issue; over 20 years after the cloning of the DNA MMR genes, how can we rekindle an active relationship with “big science” including of course “genomics”, to help us advance our collective understanding of the biology of the hereditary GI malignancy syndromes?

*NYC & Company. is the official destination marketing organization for the five boroughs of New York City. http://www.nycandcompany.org/

*New York City’s eight academic medical centers include; Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NYU Langone Medical Center, the Mt. Sinai Health System, Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Northwell Health, the State University of New York, as well as Rockefeller University and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Our planned Plenary Sessions will invite the highest level of peer reviewed abstracts to address key areas.

These will include:

  • Personal and Familial Risk assessment with a focus on effective Family Health History Ascertainment, cancer prevention, advances in surveillance technologies and clinical protocols;
  • Novel germline and somatic genetic mechanisms predisposing to hereditary GI malignancy;
  • State of the Art Novel gene discovery including the current science of “missing heritability”;
  • Novel genomic based therapies;
  • Advances in surgical and endoscopic management of hereditary GI malignancies;
  • Challenging clinical case discussions;
  • The impact of gene panel testing on the genetic and clinical management of the hereditary GI syndromes;
  • Additional sessions will be provided to meet the clinical navigation, optimal quality of life and psychological support needs of affected individuals and their families.
