Tumour cells rapidly evolve to acquire resistance to new, targeted therapeutics such as protein kinase inhibitors. Understanding such ‘acquired resistance’ has obvious clinical relevance but also reveals the plasticity of signalling pathways and their ability to remodel through feedback and cross-talk. This meeting will highlight advances in understanding how tumour cells adapt to inhibition of specific signalling pathways and the role this plays in acquired resistance.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I take pleasure in inviting you to the 11th International Symposium on GnRH – The hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis in cancer and reproduction, which will be held in Salzburg, Austria, February 9-11, 2014.
Human gonadotrophins have been in clinical use for over 50 years. This symposium will evaluate lessons learnt from the use of gonadotrophins, GnRH analogues and other peptides, and discuss future trends and changes ahead.
The 15th World Congress for Cervical Pathology and Colposcopy (IFCPC 2014) will promote the best possible standards of Colposcopy around the world with the goal of guaranteeing that women everywhere receive excellent care. IFCPC will feature structured training sessions that will improve clinician competence, performance and patient outcomes through educational activities focused around the study, prevention, diagnosis, and management of HPV and genital tract diseases. By placing the latest research and techniques at the service of health care professionals on every continent, the congress seeks to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
The BSCCP and 32 National Societies represented by the IFCPC, this congress will provide the perfect forum for sharing international knowledge and experience, dealing with core issues in cervical pathology and colposcopy. Meet the best and brightest minds working in the field at IFCPC 2014.
