EACR – Mechanisms to Therapies: Innovations in Cancer Metabolism
9 October, 2018 @ 10:30 am - 11 October, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
The study of cancer metabolism has changed our view of tumour biology. Cancer cells alter their metabolic wiring in order to meet the energetic and anabolic demands, to cope with external insults, to survive in hostile environments and to alter the molecular properties of the niche they inhabit. In this context, it is not surprising that genomic and cellular signalling perturbations have profound consequences on the metabolic landscape. The 2018 conference on Cancer Metabolism will gather top experts in the field to discuss what we know about metabolic wiring in tumours and how we can exploit it to treat cancer. The city of Bilbao (Spain) will continue to host the conference and bring together excellent research and a unique environment.
The target audience for this conference is basic and translational scientists and clinicians, both senior and young investigators that want to have a broad and detailed overview of the most recent advances in the field of cancer metabolism.
Topics to be covered
- Impact of oncogenic signaling on metabolism
- Metabolic wiring
- Metabolic control of the epigenome
- Targeting stroma metabolism
- Metabolic heterogeneity and tumour progression
- Targeting metabolic liabilities
