WIN 2016Symposium - June 27-28 - Paris - Innovative Approaches to Improve Cancer Patient Outcomes
It is the 8th edition of a successful series of symposia organized by the Worldwide Innovative Networking (WIN) Consortium, dedicated to advancing personalized cancer medicine through global collaboration.
This year WIN has chosen to address thecritical question facing cancerresearch: How innovative use oftargeted therapies can improve survival of greater numbers of cancer patients?
Goodbye flat biology: models, mechanisms and microenvironment - 2-5 October, 2016 - Berlin
After the success of the first ‘Goodbye Flat Biology’ meeting in 2014, the EACR is delighted to announce the second conference in the series: ‘Goodbye Flat Biology: Models, Mechanisms and Microenvironment’.
This conference will focus on the applications of state-of-the-art 3D culture and tissue engineering technologies to address specific scientific questions ranging from basic tumour biology to more preclinical and translational research.
The conference will be opened by Peter Friedl, a pioneer of multifocal microscopy to study cell migration and invasion, and concluded by Valerie Weaver, Director of the Center for Bioengineering and Tissue Regeneration.
The meeting should be of interest to all those who use cancer cell lines, patient-derived tissue samples or primary cultures in vitro for the study of tumour biology, bioengineering and biochemistry, drug target validation, compound and antibody screening, toxicology, and patient-tumour profiling. The active participation of young investigators and students will be particularly encouraged through a range of interactive opportunities, including a Speed Networking event, a ‘Meet the Expert’ session, and a Round Table Discussion.

Metabolism & Cancer Symposium - 22-23 september 2016 - Palavas-les-Flots
This meeting is the second edition of cancer metabolism related meetings organized by the regional branches (Cancéropoles Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur (PACA) and Grand-Sud-Ouest (GSO) of the French National Institute on Cancer (INCa). Several aspects of cancer metabolism will be presented during this meeting divided in four sessions :
- a technological workshop focused on fluxomics,
- three scientific sessions addressing the following topics: metabolic heterogeneity, stem cells, microenvironment, mitochondria and cell signaling.
