We are pleased to announce a new Cold Spring Harbor winter conference on STATs: Importance in Basic & Clinical Cancer Research, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, November 15 and run through lunch on Saturday, November 18, 2017.

This meeting follows from the highly successful Banbury conference on the same theme that took place in March 2016. We anticipate that the larger meeting format will attract many of the leading practitioners in STAT biology, as well as a significant number of students and postdocs


  • Jak-STAT mutations in cancer
  • Interferon and inflammation
  • IL-6 and related cytokines in STAT3 activation
  • STATs and the immune system
  • Malignancies in bone marrow derived cells
  • STATs and cancer cell metabolism

Abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to the STAT family of proteins and cancer. They should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible to attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Please apply in writing via email to Maureen Morrow ( and state your financial needs; preference will be given to those who submit abstracts.
