Virtual Event, Worldwide : 2 September 2020
We are pleased to organise the EACR Virtual Conference on 'Cancer Metabolism' on 02 September 2020, which will include four lectures.
Cancer metabolism is an established hallmark of cancer. The regulation of metabolic reactions in the cancer cell or the surrounding stroma generate intermediates that are at the core of cancer pathogenesis, progression, and therapy resistance. Tumours exhibit a wide variety of molecular alterations that converge in metabolic reprogramming.
We will have an outstanding session at the EACR Cancer Metabolism virtual conference with international leaders, young and consolidated. They will present the state of the art of this field from the perspective of the cancer cell, the immune compartment, and the nutrient microenvironment. The conference will include a perspective of the tumoural metabolic landscape as a result of both somatic and germline mutations.
This conference will be a fantastic introduction for newcomers and an opportunity for cancer metabolism aficionados to learn about the latest paradigms in this field.
We will organise other virtual events in 2020, visit the EACR website for more information.
Registration is free of charge and exclusive to EACR members, but if you choose to, you can use the button below to make a donation to the EACR. If you choose to donate you'll be supporting our mission of enabling cancer researchers across the world to communicate, collaborate and work together internationally to help defeat cancer.
EACR members can register for the conference here. Spaces are limited. All registrations will be manually checked and approved.
