EMBO|EMBL Symposium: Tumour Microenvironment and Signalling

3 April 2016 09:00 - 6 April 2016 17:00, Heidelberg, Germany

An emerging concept is that tumours also strongly depend on external signals for maintenance and expansion. To fully understand tumour development and progression, a deeper knowledge of the cross-talk between tumour cells and their microenvironment and the interactions between cancer cells and cancer stem cells is needed.

This symposium will aim to answer some important questions as:

-Which signals do cancer cells transmit to and receive from the stroma and how do these signals promote malignant growth?
-What roles does the extracellular matrix play during neoplastic transformation?
-What is the contribution of immune cells to tumour progression?
-How is the inflammatory response of the tumour microenvironment regulated by the microbiota?
