VIB – Metabolism in Cancer and Stromal Cells (2nd edition)

After a successful first edition of the VIB Conference “Metabolism in cancer and stromal cells” in September 2015, VIB has organized a second edition of this international Conference that will focus on how cancer and stromal cells metabolically communicate and how their specific metabolism impacts disease development and progression. These cellular metabolism insights will offer novel therapeutic opportunities for malignant, metabolic, or inflammatory disease. In addition, also the impact of ‘omics’ technologies to study cellular metabolism will be highlighted during the meeting.

This conference will bring together internationally renowned experts who will showcase their findings on cell-type specific metabolism in cancer and beyond. By bringing together experts from different disciplines, VIB aims to provide a unique platform of interactions and to create a vibrant environment for discussions on novel concepts and recent technological developments. Many META-CAN PIs will participate as well as some of our ESRs, in fact META-CAN is collaborating in this fantastic meeting.

In addition to the scientific program with plenary talks and poster sessions, there will be ample opportunities to network during the breaks, reception and conference dinner.

Submit your research – Deadline 24th September:
If you are working in the field of Metabolism in Endothelial Cells, Cancer cells, Immune cells or Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts and you want to share new findings with your colleague-researchers, you can submit your abstract before 24th September! The best abstracts will be selected for oral presentation or can win the poster prize. All accepted abstracts will be included in the program book.
