The event, which brought together dozens of participants, was attended by Sérgio Simões, CEO of Luzitin.


HealthTech World Cancer Day 2020 was the second edition of an event organized within the scope of World Cancer Day, which took place on February 3, 2020, at INL, in Braga. This was one of the five locations, worldwide, in which this initiative was carried out simultaneously to promote the advances in the latest health technologies in the fight against cancer.

This event, which brought together dozens of participants, was attended by Sérgio Simões, CEO of Luzitin, a Portuguese company focused on photodynamic therapy, which has already proved to be effective in cases of head and neck cancer. He pointed out that “all research efforts must be connected to what the patients need, and that is why the connection to clinicians must be strong and constant”.

The HealthTECH World Cancer Day 2020 helped to clarify how health technologies, specifically the ones based on nanotechnology, are giving clinicians new and better weapons in the fight against cancer, providing a faster and more accurate diagnosis as well as better outcomes with fewer side effects.
