IGCS Stories

I thank the IGCS for giving opportunities to young, budding gynecologic oncologists from developing countries to present their work at the Biennial IGCS congress. IGCS gave me the opportunity to hear experts speak on various topics, see cutting edge tools being used in the treatment of GYN cancers, interact with authorities in the field and establish contacts for future projects to drive new ideas for future research. Rohit Raghunath RanadeIndia

Happy 30th Anniversary, IGCS! Congratulations on taking this giant step moving the training of Gynecologic Oncologists in needed regions in the world! I look forward to see the Society continues to grow exponentially in the next 30 years. Linus ChuangUSA

As a member of council, I do my best to promote collaboration between various international organizations to share knowledge and increase awareness of the economical and geographical considerations impacting gynaecological cancers on a global scale. IGCS provides us with the opportunity to make new friends, get to know each other and work together to consider and create many ways to optimize women’s health all over the world! Aikou OkamotoJapan

Thanks to the IGCS traveling scholars program, I received training in the handling of specimens and studied gynae-pathology at Oxford NHS. I learned something new every day that I spent there. I was able to take my new knowledge back to train many of my colleagues in eastern Nigeria. Keep up the good work, IGCS!Olubanji OguntundeNigeria

IGCS provided me with the opportunity to present a poster at an international level. This has given me immense confidence and has invoked a special interest in the field of research which I am hoping to tap into in years to come and contribute to the ever-evolving field of research. Dr. Rohini Vinayak KulkarniIndia

I lack words to express my huge gratitude to IGCS for granting me the opportunity to observe at MSKCC which has cleared my mind and given me great incentives for development and self-improvement. Iryna MuryzinaUkraine

IGCS encouraged me to pursue research in my home country, something that I will keep on doing and try to inspire others just like me. Erick Estuardo Estrada ZaldañaGuatemala

IGCS member benefits (education and practice resources, news and journal subscription) has helped me develop my experience, skills and broaden my knowledge to thrive in this ever-changing scientific environment as I have completed my invention, the "Self-sterilizing Microbiological Culture Device."Reza Nasrollahi NargesabadIran
