23–25 March 2020 Cancer Therapy 2020

Melbourne, Australia

We are pleased to announce the Cancer Therapy 2020 scientific meeting on March 23-25, 2020 at Melbourne. The meeting aims to bring together the pioneers in both basic and translational cancer research and cover the research studies discovering the genes affect cancer risk and the genomics; fundamentals of cancer cells and the hormone responses, cancer-controlling proteins, cell signaling and growth, novel diagnostic methods, new-generation molecular targeted therapies and immune treatments. Hope to see you at Cancer Therapy 2020 Melbourne on March 23-25, 2020.

Prism Scientific Services stepping ahead to create a platform to bring together the researchers from around the world fostering collaborations in the industry and the research community to focus their efforts on cancer research translation with an aim towards cancer free world.

14–17 July 2020 Animal Models of Cancer Conference

Lisbon, Portugal

This conference will focus on three major areas: First, it will present new approaches to generate precise and complex genetic alterations in mice and other animals to better "humanize" models and allow for in vivo studies of cancer gene function. Second, it will highlight studies to investigate fundamental mechanisms of cancer initiation and progression, including the cell of origin of tumors, their evolution, their metabolism, and their interactions with the immune system. Finally, the meeting will explore how genetically engineered animal models can help evaluate the efficacy of novel therapeutic approaches and to decipher mechanisms of therapeutic resistance.

Key Sessions

- New technologies for cancer modelling

- Modeling pre-cancers and tumor initiation

- Cancer metabolism

- Cancer/immune interactions and tumor microenvironment

- Metastasis

- Preclinical trials and resistance

5–8 October 2020 3rd Chromosomal Instability as a Driver of Human Disease Conference

Lisbon, Portugal

Chaired by Ian Hickson (University of Copenhagen) and Oscar Fernandez-Capetillo (Karolinska Institutet)

Chromosome instability is involved in several human diseases and is a feature of natural ageing. This conference will bridge fundamental studies on the mechanisms by which cells maintain genome stability with applications of these studies aimed at the development of new therapies. Hence, the conference will bridge basic biology and clinical applications in this rapidly advancing field. Attendees should be able to obtain a full picture of the current status of the field, as well as to interact with prominent research leaders driving the clinical application of the latest research.

This conference is a continuation of the DNA Replication as a Source of DNA Damage series.
