5th familial cancer conference

1 février 2012

The 5th Conference aims to present recent advances in this field from a multidisciplinary point of view. During this decade, familial cancer has become an important challenge for oncologists, geneticists and molecular biologists, due to its implications not only at the individual but also at the familial and social level. This type of cancers affect several members of a single family, being the identification of high risk families, the knowledge of the genes responsible for specific diseases, the clinical follow up of mutation carriers, the development of new treatments and the discovery of tailored drugs, some of the different challenges involved. In most of European countries, the number of professionals working in this field has increased ten times over in the last years, demonstrating the interest that familial cancer has in our society. The Conference intends not only to cover and update numerous topics related to these genetic diseases but also to be a forum of discussion and meeting for professionals, either experienced clinicians and scientists or young people that are starting to work, or just interested in this exiting world.
