The new World Health Organisation classification for tumors of the digestive system is expected at the end of 2018. This classification forms the basis for diagnostics and treatment of cancer and their precursors. Authors and editors are selected based on international impact and publications over the last five years.

Iris Nagtegaal (Pathology, leader of the research theme Tumors of the digestive tract) will be leading editor on colorectal and appendiceal tumors.

Illustrative for the prominent role of the Radboudumc in hereditary cancers (National Expertise Center, ERN Genturis): our gastrointestinal pathologist are authors on hereditary gastric cancer (Chella van der Post), hereditary pancreatic cancer (Lodewijk Brosens), hamartomatous polyposis syndromes (Lodewijk Brosens) and Lynch syndrome (Iris Nagtegaal).
