4th EACR Conference: A Matter of Life or Death: From Basic Cell Death Mechanisms to Novel Cancer Treatments, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

  • Amsterdam Netherlands (map)

Evading cell death is a hallmark of cancer cells, which contributes to tumour growth and therapeutic resistance. But cancer cells also highjack mechanisms like protective autophagy or senescence to promote tumour growth. Cell death is an important determinant of the immune response to cancer, which may either increase the antitumour effect or promote tumour growth. The conference will cover exciting new insights into this highly-relevant field
