2nd META-CAN Workshop – Mouse and organomimetic models of cancer and bioinformatic approaches in research

META-CAN is a multidisciplinary coordinated EU funded project that studies the involvement of metabolism and immune system in cancer in order to unveil new therapeutic targets. As part of our Early Stage Researchers we organize anual workshops. After the success of our 1st Workshop organized in collaboration with C3M-INSERM in Nice we are glad to announce our second workshop. In this 2nd META-CAN Workshop we will have a selected group of outstanding speakers in the fields of mouse models in cancer research, organomimetic models and bioinformatics. Talks will include both basic and applied/translational research.

Organizer: Massimiliano Mazzone, VIB researcher
