The topic of the meeting “Mechanisms and Consequences of Chromosomal Translocations” covers the basic and translational underlying of chromosomal translocations in cancers. The aim of this meeting is to share the latest findings on chromosomal translocations, with major implications in our understanding of cancer etiology, onset, evolution and therapy resistance.
The meeting will be organized in three sessions:
Origins and mechanisms of chromosomal translocation formation
Toward a faithful modelling of chromosomal translocations
Diseases, functional consequences and treatment perspectives
Time will be dedicated to discussions with the aim to foster new ideas and collaborative projects. Finally, we will provide opportunities for oral and poster presentations for young scientists.
