The AEK Cancer Congress is a medium size conference with around 500 participants. It is funded by the German Cancer Society (this time with additional support of the German Research Foundation) and will be held in 2019 under the theme “Translating Cancer Biology: From Basic Mechanism to Therapeutic Exploitation”.
The conference comprises eight sessions on seven key topics of cancer biology: Cancer Immunology & Immunotherapy, Targeting Myc and Ras, Replicative Stress and DNA Damage Response, Cellular Senescence in Cancer, Metastasis, Novel Tools and Model Systems in Cancer Research and Tumor Microenvironment.
Besides 21 talks given by internationally renowned leaders in these fields, a total of 16 abstract talks to be selected will give students, postdocs and junior faculty the chance to present their latest research. In addition, the best posters will be presented as “Flash Talks”.
We particularly would like to encourage students and postdocs to attend the conference and offer special registration rates for them. In addition, there will be travel bursaries for young investigators.
