Purpose of the conference

This symposium brings together researchers from complementary fields to enhance understanding of the communication between cancer cells and their microenvironment. Important open questions are: 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 tumor progression? How is the inflammatory response of the tumour microenvironment regulated by the microbiota?

Session topics:

• Tumor Microenvironment
• Signalling pathways in stroma and cancer
• Therapeutical implications: from bench to bedside
• Cancer Stem Cells
• Cancer & the immune system
• Animal models in cancer
