Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure and an honour to extend you a warm invitation to attend the 13th International Conference of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group (iMig 2016), to be held May 1 – 4, 2016 at the International Conference Centre in Birmingham, UK.

Building on the success of preceding meetings in Boston in 2012 and Cape Town in 2014, the Conference will feature a highly interactive, stimulating and multidisciplinary program including workshops, plenary sessions as well as oral abstract and poster sessions. Under the theme of ‘Towards Personalized Care’ the meeting will address the entire patient pathway and look beyond the scientific topics alone.

The Conference will provide the ideal forum to stimulate ideas and establish collaborations as well as to initiate intense discussions. Extended networking opportunities will foster communications between delegates.

It is an exciting time for mesothelioma research and we hope to see you in Birmingham in 2016 for the iMig 2016 Conference.

With best wishes,


David Waller


Dean A. Fennell
