Virtual event, Worldwide : 6 - 7 December 2022
The EACR conference on "The invisible phase of metastasis: Impact of dormancy, cancer cell plasticity and evolution of the niche during metastatic progression" will gather together world-leading researchers in the field to uncover the invisible phase of systemic cancer. The meeting will conclude with a discussion forum on how to translate emerging findings for the prevention of lethal metastatic disease.
The programme aims to deliver an in-depth overview of recently identified mechanisms - cell-intrinsic and microenvironmental - that are decisive for metastatic colonization and early organ-specific or systemic defence. After manifestation, metastatic disease in patients and animal models is well studied, increasingly understood and disease courses found to be surprisingly homogeneous and constant in many cancer types. In stark contrast, disease courses before metastatic manifestation are highly variable and we are just getting a first glimpse into the - until recently - invisible phase of metastatic progression. However, this phase bears the greatest potential for improved cancer cures.
This conference will be relevant for lab-based and clinical researchers, as well as those working in industry. We encourage investigators at all levels to attend. The target audience ranges from Master’s students to established PIs who have a keen interest in gaining knowledge about mechanisms of minimal residual cancer and mechanisms driving or preventing metastatic manifestation.
