 Abstract In the last decade the understanding of virus-induced cancers has been accelerated by the extraordinary developments in genomics, epigenetics and RNA biology. To review this rapidly burgeoning field, this multidisciplinary symposium brings together experts in virology, oncology, immunology, genomics and genetics. The objective of the symposium is to explore how advances in cancer biology can inform the understanding of virus-induced cancers, and how viruses continue to reveal fundamental principles in cancer. Particular emphasis will be laid on the interaction between virus and host in persistent infections by oncogenic viruses.

7.Gordon Research Conference — Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics 2015
 Dates 12 Apr 2015 → 17 Apr 2015
[ID=648229] Go to top of page
 LocationLucca, Italy
 Abstract The causative links between genomic and genetic variations and cancer are well documented and have provided a greater understanding of tumorigenesis and cancer progression. Molecular genetic information has been used to derive new therapeutic regimens and has accelerated the development and application of "personalised cancer medicine". There are also an increasing appreciation that epigenetic aberrations that are often directly caused by genetic defects resulting in loss- or gain-of-function of epigenetic-regulators also contribute significantly to cancer onset and progression. Indeed, parallel integration of our knowledge of the cancer genome and epigenome using sophisticated "omics-based" technologies and high throughput functional screening techniques are providing even more tangible links between genetic/genomic aberrations, epigenetic/epigenomic dysregulation and tumorigenesis. This information is being functionally validated using experimental models that accurately reflect the underlying genetic and epigenetic alterations observed in human tumor samples. Moreover, the information is being translated into clinical use through the development of genetic and epigenetic biomarkers of cancer development, evolution, heterogeneity and response to therapeutic intervention. This GRC series focuses on the advances in discovering and validating "driver" mutations in cancer genes, understanding the downstream consequences of these genetic changes on the epigenome and how this information is being best utilized to advance cancer detection, monitoring and therapy.

The consortium was established in December 1988 as the International Breast Cancer Screening Database Project during an international workshop involving representatives from 11 countries. The consortium has since grown to encompass more than 30 countries and now addresses colorectal, cervical, and other types of cancer screening. The ICSN is dedicated to collaborative research aimed at identifying and fostering efficient and effective approaches to cancer control worldwide through population-based screening. It does not address efficacy or use clinical trials data. Participation in the ICSN is open to any country that has initiated a population-based cancer screening program.

 Dates 20 Jun 2015 → 23 Jun 2015
[ID=698503] Go to top of page
 LocationFlorence, Italy
 Abstract EACR, AACR and SIC (Italian Cancer Society) have joined forces to organise a strong multidisciplinary meeting of cancer researchers and practising clinical experts as well as those focused on the development of new targeted therapeutics. Inhibitors targeting mutant proteins have shown unprecedented impact on the rate and duration of clinical responses. Despite these results, most cancers treated with single agents rapidly acquire resistance through a variety of mechanisms, severely limiting clinical benefit. This conference will have presentations ranging across the identification of novel drug targets; non-oncogene addiction and synthetic lethality; discovery of drug resistance mechanisms; the development of combinatorial therapies; and related translational topics, across a wide spectrum of cancer types.

 Abstract Radiotherapy relies heavily on the use of CT, ultrasound, and MRI to plan treatments. Recently, anatomic imaging techniques have been combined to functional imaging modalities that provide additional metabolic information. Such biological data allows more individualised treatments by refining the target volume delineation and the dose prescription. This one day event will cover the latest advances in the use of functional imaging in radiotherapy that pave the way for the development of more targeted treatments. It will be of interest to all radiotherapy and imaging professionals, including clinical oncologists, radiologists, radiographers and physicists.

[ID=698587] Go to top of page
 LocationTrieste, Italy
 Abstract ICGEB DNA Tumour Virus Meeting attracts close to 300 scientists from around the world, and is a forum for discussing the latest developments in the molecular biology of DNA tumour viruses (SV40, polyoma, Adenovirus and HPV). The meeting has an amazing pedigree in being the forum in which many of the fundamental aspects of cell biology, that we now take for granted, were first described. This includes the very earliest developments in DNA sequencing, discovery of oncogenes and oncogene cooperation, identification of tumour suppressors including p53 and pRb, identification of regulators of apoptosis, such as Bak and Bax, the earliest descriptions of signal transduction pathways, RNA splicing and polyadenylation, transcriptional enhancers and promoter regulation and identification of factors regulating DNA replication. All of which have contributed hugely to our understanding of basic cell regulatory processes, particularly with respect to the steps which go wrong during the development of cancer.
33.Gordon Research Conference — Hormone-Dependent Cancers 2015
 Dates 16 Aug 2015 → 21 Aug 2015
[ID=655457] Go to top of page
 LocationNewry, United States
 Abstract The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Hormone-Dependent Cancers: Mechanisms to Tailored Therapeutics, will bring together an outstanding faculty of new and more established scientists and translational researchers to explore molecular mechanisms of disease and strategize about new targeted therapies for hormone-dependent cancers. Hormones influence not only breast and prostate cancer, the two most common hormone-dependent cancers, but also have a major impact on less common hormone-sensitive malignancies (e.g. ovary, testes, endometrium) as well as human cancers recently discovered to be hormone sensitive (e.g. lung, liver). Developing a means to more specifically treat and ideally prevent hormone-dependent cancers is of critical importance given the significant impact these malignancies have on human health and the economic burden of disease. An in depth understanding of hormone action in regulating diverse cellular processes, cancer phenotypes and drug responsiveness is essential for the development of effective and well tolerated treatment strategies. The 2015 GRC is designed to maximize interaction between participants, in order to engender creativity and cross-fertilization of ideas across multiple disciplines while fostering mentorship of early career scientists. Scientists and clinicians from both academia and industry with expertise in contemporary ‘omics’, transcriptional control, cell signaling, human disease modeling and clinical translation will provide a stimulating and engaging format for interaction and fruitful exchange of scientific ideas common to overlapping research fields, such that novel concepts emerge, scientific collaborations are formed, and new translational opportunities are revealed.
