Critical Issues in Tumor Microenvironment: Angiogenesis, Metastasis, and Immunology

Monday, September 29, 2014

The Royal Sonesta Hotel, 45 Edwin Land Blvd.,Cambridge MA 02141

Our 29th Annual Tumor Course will continue to offer the best in critical analysis of what is currently known about the tumor microenvironment, angiogenesis, metastasis, immunology and targeted therapies. Our internationally recognized faculty will present their latest findings from their clinics and laboratories. The goal is to highlight key gaps in our present knowledge of cancer and outline future directions for research at the bench, in the clinic, and in drug development.

The course will continue its four-day live lecture format. The faculty will encourage an open discussion and will provide critical comments on the challenges and the future opportunities in research on cancer and in establishment of novel therapy approaches and biomarkers to guide treatment.

The objective of this course is to discuss our current understanding of tumor microenvironment, the formation and function of new vessels in tumors, and their relationship with metastasis, anti-tumor immunity and outcome of various treatments. The focus will be placed on their pathophysiological significance and clinical relevance, with particular emphasis on clinical translation and biomarkers.
