Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The meeting will take place at the Molecular Biotechnology Center in Via Nizza 52, close to the Turin city center.
This event is meant to bring together scientists working in distinct areas of cancer research to foster scientific discussion.
It will tackle the molecular mechanisms that promote tumorigenesis and progression, focusing on three major areas: tumor microenvironment, metabolic rewiring in the cancer cell, and metastatic spreading. In addition, the meeting will open by discussing how basic research can support personalized therapy.
We believe that this conference represents a great opportunity to share ideas, promote collaborations in a friendly and exciting setting, and strengthen our community.
Five lectures from our invited speakers, Emilio Hirsch, Massimiliano Mazzone, Enzo Medico, Jim Norman and Carlo Sebastian, will provide us with relevant updates in the fields of cancer microenvironment, metabolism and invasion.
In the various sessions, talks will be given by Ph.D. students and postdocs selected from the most innovative abstracts.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Turin, a beautiful location that also offers outstanding cultural initiatives.
