PAIRS is strongly committed to the principle of educational sessions leading the healthcare professionals to discuss and appreciate current and cutting edge technology and reach practical conclusions to help them in everyday practice. In this respect a three days’ meeting has been designed providing comprehensive case-based review and hands on experience covering topics in embolization, venous interventions, amputation prevention and neurointerventions.
The meeting is also a great opportunity to meet and network with colleagues in the field of IR. More than 500 healthcare professionals are expected to attend originating from the MENA region.
An emerging concept is that tumors also strongly depend on external signals for maintenance and expansion. To fully understand tumor development and progression, a deeper knowledge of the cross-talk between tumor cells and their microenvironment and the interactions between cancer cells and cancer stem cells is needed.
Aims of event
This symposium brings together researchers from complementing fields to enhance our 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 tumor microenvironment regulated by the microbiota?
One of the key objectives of the 2016 Symposium will be to arm delegates with the necessary tools that will enable them to make a difference, implement and take actions at all levels, in global fight against cancer or autoimmunity diseases.
This is highlighted by an increasing number of cancers/syndromes with clear ciliary connections such as Birt-Hogg-Dube syndrome, Von Hippel-Lindau disease and Tuberous Sclerosis. Not only do cilia normally regulate many of the cellular signalling pathways commonly perturbed in cancer, but the ability to form cilia is lost in many transformed cells and it has been shown that the primary cilium can both mediate and suppress Hedgehog pathway-dependent tumourigenesis.
As the pivotal link between tumourigenesis and cilia function is emerging, this meeting will represent a timely opportunity to bring together researchers from the fields of cancer and cytoskeletal/cilia biology.
The format will allow invitation of speakers in cilia and cytoskeletal biology and speakers with specific interest in how these cellular processes influence the carcinogenesis process. Structured thematic sessions with talks describing fundamental cellular processes in cilia, cytoskeletal and tumour biology and how dysregulation of these processes can initiate disease, will culminate with talks aimed at the interplay between cilia, cytoskeleton and cancer and how these processes can be targeted therapeutically.
Innovationen für Patienten stehen wie in kaum einer anderen Fachdisziplin im Zentrum unserer täglichen klinischen Arbeit und unserer wissenschaftlichen Anstrengungen. Die Radioonkologie hat sich in den letzten Jahren unglaublich dynamisch entwickelt. Gemeinsam mit unseren Kollegen von der ÖGRO wollen wir unsere neuesten Forschungsergebnisse präsentieren, Zukunftsentwicklungen diskutieren und den kollegialen Austausch pflegen.
