The meeting aims to bring together scientists who are interested in understanding the connections between basic epigenetic pathways and the process of cancer. One aspect of the meeting will highlight the mechanisms by which epigenetic pathways control various biological processes. A second aspect will revolve around the connections between epigenetic pathways and cancer.
This conference brings together experts from academia and industry who have pioneered the field of cancer immunotherapy, and will showcase the integration of this increasingly complicated knowledge into rapid translation into clinical applications.
The Fifth Gordon Conference on Stems Cells and Cancer will focus on understanding how cancer stem cells behave and interact with their niche. Topics that will be explored at the meeting will be to examine diversity of cancer stem cells as they regulate metastasis, an understanding of normal stem cell biology including epigenetic regulation, and understanding of aging and cancer, cancer stem cell biology including clonal evolution.
This laboratory-based training course will provide a comprehensive overview and practical laboratory experience of the genetic manipulation of mammalian stem cells. Focusing on mouse ES and human iPS cells, genome informatics, recombineering, CRISPR designer nucleases, transposon technology and gene targeting will be covered in interactive demonstrations, discussions and lectures by international experts.
This conference will focus on the analysis of cells and its diverse applications in bio-molecular and chemical biology research techniques and will also cover Stem cell based therapies for treating cancers along with role of Circulating Tumor Cells as Predictive Biomarkers.
