This year’s Annual Meeting theme, "Harnessing Breakthroughs • Targeting Cures,” reflects the great progress being made in cancer research as discoveries in the lab are translated into treatments in an increasingly targeted and precise manner.

Tumour Microenvironment and Signalling
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany-Wednesday 7 May - Saturday 10 May 2014

This symposium brings together researchers from complementary 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 tumour microenvironment regulated by the microbiota?

Keystone Symposia: Stem Cells and Cancer
February 2-7, 2014-Banff, Canada

This meeting will examine the links between stem cell development and cancer initiation and progression. A major objective of the meeting will be to define new pathways and mechanisms that drive oncogenesis and that may be targeted to develop better preclinical models of cancer and design more effective approaches to therapy.

20th International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) Annual Meeting 2014
April 23-26, 2014-Paris, France

The plenary sessions of this meeting are planned to cover topics such as gene modified cell therapy, neurological disorders, cardiovascular disease, immunotherapy, tissue engineering and others. The oral abstract sessions will emphasize the very best science at the meeting, and the poster sessions are expected to generate the informal exchanges that will stimulate the concepts leading to cell therapy advances. In addition, there are going to will be workshops covering a diversity of topics, a strong commercial track and a very deep quality and operations track.
