4th EACR Conference on Cancer Genomics

Cambridge, UK : 23 - 26 June 2019

Introduction

Cancer Genomics 2019 is the fourth EACR conference on this topic, and it is now widely recognised as the premier European conference dedicated to cancer genomics. In 2019 it will again cover the latest exciting developments: convergence (modelling, artificial intelligence and big data), single cell analysis of cancers, cancer immune genomics, and clinical applications of genomics.

Featuring an exceptional international faculty, extensive networking opportunities and a maximum of 200 participants, this conference will provide an intimate setting for top quality scientific interaction. We look forward to welcoming you to Cambridge for this exciting meeting!

Target audience 

Cancer Genomics 2019 will be relevant to participants from across a number of fields including systems biology, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, cancer medicine, translational research, epigenomics, cancer immunology and molecular pathology. Importantly, early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their work to the international community.

Topics to be covered

  • Cancer Evolution and Immune Evasion : Determinism and cancer progression
  • Interpreting the cancer genome through physical and functional models of the cancer cell
  • Determinants of immunological response to immune checkpoint blockade in human cancer
  • Cancer epigenetics and genome regulation at single cell resolution
  • How are cancers born?
  • A systems level view of breast cancer through the lens of artificial intelligence
  • A single cell lens into metastasis
  • Identification of (neo)antigenic landscape of human tumors
