Frontiers in Tumor Progression

October 24-27, 2010, Madrid, Spain

June 3, 2010

Cell invasion and metastasis are the basis for most cancer-related deaths, and remain a central enigma and a crucial agenda for cancer research. It is increasingly evident that tumours developing in different organs use related but not identical strategies, likely reflective of the distinctive microenvironment they face during their ontogeny. Moreover, multiple cell types constituting the activated tumour stroma contribute to invasion and metastasis, in addition to the aberrant properties of the cancer cells.

The symposium will bring together world leaders on some of the key biological and genetic mechanisms of invasion and metastasis. The main lectures will be complemented by a number of short talks selected from the submitted abstracts and a large number of posters. The organizers actively encourage presentation of unpublished work and lively discussion.
