A Matter of Life or Death: Mechanisms, Models and Therapeutic Opportunities

Bergamo, Italy : 12 - 14 February 2020

Networking Opportunities

At the EACR, we know that conferences are about more than just hearing the latest research. Our events are well-known for providing excellent opportunities for networking, interaction and discussion. Here are some of the features you can look forward to at A Matter of Life or Death: Mechanisms, Models and Therapeutic Opportunities.

Networking Reception

Wednesday 12 February, 17:30-18:00

A complimentary buffet dinner will be served for all participants and exhibitors to enjoy on Wednesday evening. Why not take the opportunity to make new connections in an informal setting! The trade exhibition will be open during this time, and Poster Discussion Session 1 will follow at 18:00.

Poster Discussion Sessions

Wednesday 12 February, 18:00-19:30
Thursday 13 February, 13.30-15.00

There are two dedicated 90-minute Poster Discussion Sessions in the programme. At these times, the presenters for that session should stand by their posters to discuss their work with other participants and invited speakers. As well as the dedicated sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, there will also be additional poster viewing opportunities each morning - coffee will be available from 08.30, and posters can be freely browsed

Discussion Forum

Thursday 13 February, 17:45-18:30

A panel of invited speakers will tackle a hot topic, discussing the role of cell death and its deregulation in cancer initiation, malignant progression, and therapy resistance.  Participants are invited to ask their questions and contribute to the conversation.

Meet the Experts

Friday 14 February, 09:00-09:45

An interactive session with a focus on women in science where our speakers Prof. Formenti, Prof. Fulda and Prof. Jendrossek will share from their personal and professional perspectives on the path to scientific leadership. This session will take place in the lecture theatre, and will be a forum for open discussion where participants are encouraged to ask their questions.

Conference Dinner

Thursday 13 February, 19:00

The Conference Dinner will take place on the final night of the meeting at the atmospheric Ristorante Taverna Valtellinese, a short walk from the conference venue. It will be an excellent opportunity for participants and speakers to get to know each other in a relaxed and informal environment. A four course meal will be served, with wine (or alternative) and coffee included in the ticket price.

Tickets for the conference dinner are not included in the registration fee and can be purchased on the registration page as an optional extra for €50.
