Cell Symposia: Hallmarks of Cancer
ID
761460
Dates
11 Dec 2016 - 13 Dec 2016
Location
Ghent, Belgium
Abstract
As one of the most investigated areas in biomedical research, the cancer field is rapidly advancing by translating biological insights towards better detection and therapeutics, including molecular classifications as well as immunotherapies. In the era of the genetically informed, emerging concepts in cancer biology and oncology research are colliding into precision medicine. In order to accelerate the development of personalized cancer therapies and further translate fundamental discoveries into the clinic, there must be open lines of communication at the interface between the lab and the clinic. Our goal in organizing this Cell Symposium, Hallmarks of Cancer, is to convene global leaders in the cancer research arena to enhance our understanding of the key aspects of cancer and how to promote translation of this knowledge into the development of targeted therapeutics. We aim to provide a high-impact, high-profile forum for exchanging ideas and establishing a dialogue amongst clinicians, scientists and drug development companies. Symposium themes: Tumor metabolism, Tumor heterogeneity, Tumor immunology and immunotherapy, Personalized cancer therapy, Metastasis and the tumor microenvironment.

Keystone Symposia: Cell Plasticity within the Tumor Microenvironment
ID
828568
Dates
08 Jan 2017 - 12 Jan 2017
Location
Big Sky, Montana, United States
Abstract
Scholarship & Discounted Abstract Deadline: Sep 13, 2016; Abstract Deadline: Oct 6, 2016; Discounted Registration Deadline: Nov 8, 2016

During the last decade, it has become unequivocally evident that tumor development is not a cell-autonomous process but rather depends on the intricate reciprocal interplay of mutant tumor cells with their local and distant environments. Composition and polarization of cells in the tumor microenvironment depends on genetic as well as environmental factors and is directly influenced by tumor therapy. Indeed, therapies that aim to shape the local immune milieu and consecutive signaling pathways in both stromal and tumor/stem cells address the complex pathophysiology of tumors more adequately and may therefore add substantial benefits for therapy. An absolute pre-requisite for such an endeavor is a comprehensive understanding of the exact molecular basis of the complex signaling networks in the tumor microenvironment that control the plasticity of both stromal and tumor cells, thereby shaping the complex cellular contexture, which ultimately forms a pro- or anti-tumorigenic milieu. Thus, this symposium aims to gather a comprehensive functional understanding of mediator-dependent cellular and molecular events that are responsible for the plasticity of both stromal and tumor/stem cells. It will bring together experts in cancer, stromal and immune cells to synthesize scientific knowledge about the phenomenon of cell plasticity within the tumor microenvironment, to define molecular and cellular pathways mediating plasticity and to propose approaches to interfere with cell plasticity for a new generation of effective therapeutic approaches in cancer and chronic injury. Importantly, it will bring together interdisciplinary groups of scientists or investigators who normally would not have an opportunity to meet (classical cancer biologists, tumor immunobiologists, stem cell experts and scientists working on stromal cells).

Keystone Symposia: TGF-ß in Immunity, Inflammation and Cancer
ID
828555
Dates
09 Jan 2017 - 13 Jan 2017
Location
Taos, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
TGF-beta is a key regulator of immune responses, inflammation and cancer. In addition to the well-established effects of TGF-beta on CD4+ T cell differentiation and reprogramming, TGF-beta also plays critical roles in other immune cells. TGF-beta has also been implicated in the regulation of the interactions among immune cells, microbiota and epithelial cells. In addition to safeguarding immune homeostasis and suppressing chronic inflammation and autoimmunity, TGF-beta is emerging as a potential checkpoint in anti-tumor immunity. Despite great progress in the field, key questions related to TGF-beta functions in immune responses are still largely undetermined. Therefore, it is imperative to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which TGF-beta controls such diverse immune cells. Elucidation of these pathways would allow us to understand the pathogenesis of chronic inflammation, autoimmunity and cancer and aid development of therapeutic practices in experimental and ultimately clinical settings. This meeting will gather together experts in the fields of both TGF-beta signaling and immunology to discuss new findings and update the pivotal role of TGF-beta in immunity, inflammation and cancer, with the aim to lay out the critical and key questions and outline new directions.

Keystone Symposia: Noncoding RNAs – From Disease to Targeted Therapeutics
ID
833405
Dates
05 Feb 2017 - 09 Feb 2017
Location
Banff, Alberta, Canada
Abstract
It has become apparent over the last decade that small and long noncoding RNAs play a major role in the regulation of gene expression and disease. While much emphasis has been centered on the role of noncoding RNAs in human disease, a gap remains in utilizing this knowledge to develop target specific approaches to disrupting noncoding RNA pathways for therapeutic gain. This meeting will for the first time bring together an interdisciplinary group of basic and applied noncoding RNA scientists in an effort to translate our current understanding of noncoding RNA biology into meaningful therapeutics for many of those diseases afflicting society. To accomplish this goal, the meeting will aim to: (1) Introduce the broad genome-wide basic fabric of noncoding RNA regulation and form and function in the cell; (2) Focus on direct RNA/chromatin/DNA or RNA/protein interactions with candidate disease-relevant model systems; and (3) Highlight synthetic biological approaches to developing RNA or oligonucleotide mimics to target and/or disrupt particular disease-relevant noncoding RNA pathways. The goal of this meeting is to bring together basic and applied scientists working on noncoding RNAs in an effort to not only better understand the role noncoding RNAs play in the regulation of disease-relevant genes but also the emerging ability to utilize this knowledge to develop targeted therapeutics, an eventuality that heralds a new frontier in drug development and therapeutics.

2nd Exploring DNA Repair Pathways as Targets for Cancer Therapy Conference
ID
814009
Dates
27 Feb 2017 - 02 Mar 2017
Location
Cancun, Mexico
Abstract
Defect in DNA damage repair and checkpoint control is the underlying mechanism for tumorigenesis, since it allows the accumulation of multiple genetic alternations, which are essential for the initiation of tumorigenesis. This has been clearly illustrated to be the cause of several human cancer-prone syndromes and also revealed by recent human genome studies. On the other hand, defective DNA repair and checkpoint activation also make cancer cells more vulnerable for particular DNA damaging agents or inhibitors that specifically disrupt some of these checkpoint pathways. With the increasing understanding of defects in DNA repair and checkpoint control in tumorigenesis, there are extensive interests in exploring these deficiencies, especially taking advantage of the synthetic lethality concept and targeting particular DNA repair and checkpoint pathways for cancer therapy. The purpose of this conference is to bring together basic, translational and clinical investigators and discuss the current and future directions, opportunities and obstacles in the development of these anti-cancer modalities and how to best apply these concepts in clinical practice.

Keystone Symposia - Adaptations to Hypoxia in Physiology and Disease
ID
825173
Dates
05 Mar 2017 - 09 Mar 2017
Location
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Abstract
Cellular responses to changes in oxygen availability have important implications for both physiology and pathophysiology, in particular in the setting of solid tumor progression. A number of hypoxia-inducible pathways have been characterized, such as the large transcriptome regulated by hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs). However, many other oxygen-sensing pathways exist within the cell. The aim of this meeting is to disseminate up-to-date information on basic mechanisms of cellular and tissue hypoxia responses, and discuss the impact of these responses on physiology and cancer, with an emphasis on HIF-independent, but nevertheless fundamental, oxygen-sensing pathways. Outcomes of this meeting will include the dissemination of new scientific knowledge, the discussion of new methodologies, the education of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in this discipline, and promotion of new collaborations between clinicians, basic researchers and industrial partners. This will be the eighth Keystone Symposia meeting on Hypoxia, which brings together academic, clinical and industrial researchers to enhance synergy between these groups and develop translational strategies for targeting hypoxic stress responses for therapeutic benefit.

Location
London, United Kingdom
Abstract
Palliative radiotherapy is used to relieve our patients of pain or other distressing symptoms of their cancer and to improve their quality of life. It has traditionally been associated with the use of simple planning and delivery techniques but there is now increasing interest in the use of the latest treatment techniques such as Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) to provide more effective and durable control and reduce toxicity. Alongside these developments, there has also been a change to a more multidisciplinary approach in the management of palliative cancer care with consultant therapeutic radiographers and nurses taking an increasingly active role in the planning of palliative radiotherapy.

Keystone Symposia - Immune Regulation in Autoimmunity and Cancer
ID
825347
Dates
26 Mar 2017 - 30 Mar 2017
Location
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Abstract
While the importance of adoptive and innate immunity has been clear in the pathogenesis of human autoimmune disease resulting in a multitude of immune-based therapeutic approaches, the realization is now apparent that understanding immune evasion by cancer is central in developing curative treatments. This meeting will explore and contrast the underlying immune mechanisms resulting in autoimmunity and tumor evasion. The meeting is innovative in bringing together basic immunologists investigating mechanisms of tolerance with scientists exploring immune mechanisms of autoimmunity and cancer in both patients and experimental models. Thus, this Keystone Symposia meeting will cover the pathways in immunity and tolerance that lead to loss of immunological control, dysregulated immune responses and chronic inflammatory disease or tumor evasion. Presentations will include consideration of preclinical and clinical aspects of a diverse number of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and cancer. Conference participants engaged in preclinical, translational and clinical research will hopefully engage in continuing conversations and collaborations which, over the long-term, will provide greater insights into the human immune response and allow us to reassess and further explore pathways that are driving autoimmune disease yet in opposition, lead to tumor evasion. Understanding checkpoints in autoimmunity and immune cell tolerance is important for delivering therapies to patients with autoimmune disease and cancer, and this meeting will provide a platform for the cross-pollination of clinical experience and experimental research. Attendees will have learned about the impact of targeted immune-based therapeutics on clinical outcome and, consequently, be able to widen their research scope accordingly.

Keystone Symposia - Genomic Instability and DNA Repair
ID
825337
Dates
02 Apr 2017 - 02 Jun 2017
Location
Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States
Abstract
Genome stability is the foundation upon which all cellular and organismal processes depend. This conference will grapple with the intricate array of biochemical reactions orchestrated by the cell to replicate, repair and segregate chromosomes accurately despite constant threats from spontaneous and environmentally-induced damage. Defects in these reactions lead to genomic instability, a confirmed driver of cancer and degenerative diseases. Fascinating and therapeutically crucial questions remain about the mechanisms underlying chromosome stability, and cross-disciplinary approaches are required to address them. How do epigenetic chromatin marks influence repair of underlying DNA sequences, and how can we predict the effects of chemotherapeutic agents that alter such marks? To what extent is the nucleus organized into subdomains with distinct functions; how are these subdomains altered when cells move or differentiate? How are the myriad helicases, nucleases and polymerases coordinated to safeguard genome stability, why are these molecules often mutated in human disease, and how can we ameliorate the effects of such mutations? What is the array of strategies available to cancer cells as they achieve unlimited proliferation? This conference has a history of bringing together investigators from diverse subfields who otherwise rarely meet. Cutting-edge concepts in translational, genomic, cellular, molecular, RNA and structural biology will be dissected to take the conversation to unprecedented levels of depth and breadth. The concurrent conference on “DNA Replication and Recombination” will provide additional opportunities for cross-talk. Both conferences are committed to nurturing interactions among longtime experts in the field with students, postdocs and investigators new to the field.

2nd DNA Replication as a Source of DNA Damage Conference
ID
814093
Dates
03 Jul 2017 - 06 Jul 2017
Location
Rome, Italy
Abstract
The maintenance of genome integrity is critical for the suppression of cancer and premature ageing. Only recently has it become appreciated that DNA replication stress is a crucial driver of genomic instability. The timely progression of replisomes can be disrupted by lesions and secondary structures in the template, by bound proteins and by conflicts with the transcription machinery. A prolonged pause of the replisome then exposes single stranded DNA, which, due to its recombinogenic nature, can lead to genome rearrangements, fragile site expression and cell death. Importantly, some cancers present excessive endogenous levels of replication stress, which can be exploited for their clearance. In this conference, we aim to bring together scientists studying DNA replication and repair, with those interested in how DNA damage can influence cancer and ageing.
