EACR-AACR Basic and Translational Research Conference in partnership with ASPIC
Lisbon, Portugal | 02-04 March 2020
The European Association for Cancer Research (EACR), American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and Associação Portuguesa de Investigação em Cancro (ASPIC) are proud to announce this new joint Basic and Translational Research Conference on Tumor Microenvironment, to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, 02-04 March 2020.
This EACR-AACR-ASPIC conference on Tumor Microenvironment (TME) will bring together thought leaders spanning the breadth of TME, immune-oncology, computational biology and biomedical technology disciplines to discuss novel approaches to identify critical mechanisms regulating the crosstalk in these tumor ecosystems. We will also discuss therapeutic approaches to target the TME for durable tumor control, including strategies being deployed in patients, and initial clinical findings. The goal will be to not only discuss the current state of the TME field, but also discuss approaches towards applying that knowledge to the development of effective and broadly applicable anti-cancer therapies for long-term management of disease.
Cancers are communities of cells, including those harboring genetic mutations, aka “tumor” or “cancer” cells, as well as other “normal” cell types activated and/or recruited to the local tumor microenvironment (TME). Components of the TME (e.g., blood and lymphatic vessels, fibroblasts and other mesenchymal support cells, innate and adaptive immune cells, as well as extracellular matrix, hypoxia, and low pH), while regulating or being regulated by hallmark features of cancer development, can also thwart efficacy of cytotoxic, targeted and immune therapies.
