Making it Personal: Cancer Precision Medicine

Amsterdam, Netherlands : 13 - 16 March 2017


This conference is the second on this topic co-organised by the EACR and OECI. The conference will update you on advances in personalised cancer medicine, focusing on targeted and immunological therapeutic approaches. It will cover the challenges of tumour heterogeneity, drug resistance and the influence of the tumour microenvironment.

The programme will emphasise new in vitro and in vivo experimental models capturing the complexity of human tumours. New therapeutic targets will be discussed, including those from the metabolome and microenvironment. We will also give attention to how advances coming from the laboratory are being implemented in the clinic.

The programme includes plenary lectures and dedicated poster sessions, providing an excellent forum to share new data and to network with colleagues. Indeed, this conference will be limited to 120 participants, and speakers are invited to stay for the duration of the conference. There will be ample opportunity for networking and interaction, including a meet-the-speaker round table session.

Target audience

The conference will bring together basic, translational and clinical scientists, as well as physicians engaged in the challenges of personalised medicine, the development of new therapeutics and clinical implementation. 

Topics to be covered

  • Tumour evolution
  • Organoids, PDX, CTX, ODX
  • Metabolome targets
  • Influence of the microenvironment
  • New targets
  • Combinatorial targeted & immuno approaches

Scientific Programme Committee: Daniel Peeper (chair), Richard Marais, Giorgio Stanta and Emile Voest
