A Matter of Life or Death: Mechanisms and Relevance of Cell Death for Cancer Biology and Treatment

A Matter of Life or Death: Mechanisms and Relevance of Cell Death for Cancer Biology and Treatment is a conference dedicated to developments that are crucial to the understanding of the multifaceted role of cell death in tumour initiation, progression and therapy response.

A Matter of Life or Death: Mechanisms and Relevance of Cell Death for Cancer Biology and Treatment covers topics such as:

  • Cancer cell autonomous TRAIL-receptor signaling and cancer progression
  • The various modes of programmed cell death and their regulation, e.g. apoptosis, autophagy and necroptosis
  • The interplay of p53-mediated apoptosis and tumour suppression
  • Ouroborous, autophagy and growth control
  • Autophaghy and cancer metabolism
  • The protein interaction map of apoptosis and autophagy
  • In vivo RNAi screening for the identification of new resistance mechanisms
  • Importance and therapeutic exploitation of the cellular stress response, the ubiquitin proteasome system and cell death signalling for cancer therapy
  • New strategies to kill cancer stem cells
  • Precision cancer therapy targeting mitochondria
  • Therapeutic reprograming of radiation-induced immune deviation in normal tissue responses
  • Therapeutic targets in DNA repair

A Matter of Life or Death: Mechanisms and Relevance of Cell Death for Cancer Biology and Treatment brings together scientists from different fields of cancer research, such as

  • Molecular pathology
  • Cancer biology
  • Cancer immunology
  • Molecular oncology
  • Radiation biology and oncology
  • Pharmacology
  • Medical oncology
