Presidential Welcome

It is my great pleasure and honor to invite you to join us for the 9th Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Gastrointestinal Hereditary Tumours (InSiGHT).   We are excited to gather with friends and colleagues once again, in person.  With a theme of “Saving Lives through Applying Knowledge,” we are assembling a faculty of international experts and highlighting cutting edge research and innovations in the field.  It is amazing to think that it has been 30 years since the discovery of the APC gene mutation and its implications in colorectal cancer development and familial adenomatous polyposis.  There has been an explosion of information over the last 3 decades and our knowledge grows exponentially with the development of new technologies and techniques.  Meetings such as InSiGHT allow for exchange of ideas and sharing of knowledge, truly on a global scale.  We are proud to welcome guests from around the world to the greater New York City area, one of the financial, medical, and cultural centers of the world.  The venue in Jersey City in on the Hudson River waterfront provides spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and downtown Manhattan is only minutes away by frequently running trains, subways, and ferries.   I look forward to seeing you in September, 2022!
