ISREC-SCCL Symposium 2020

Hallmarks of Cancer – 20 Years On

August 29 – September 1, 2020

Swisstech Convention Center (STCC) Lausanne

We celebrate the 20th anniversary of the “Hallmarks of Cancer”, an influential perspective by Robert Weinberg and Douglas Hanahan that conceptualized cancer mechanisms by reducing its complexity to a small number of underlying principles.

Join us in Lausanne for a confernce exciting roster of influential basic, translational, and clinical cancer scientists who will showcase our evolution in knowledge about these hallmarks. Topics will include:

  • Hallmark perspectives
  • Drivers and brakes (proliferative signaling and growth suppressors)
  • Evading cell death – apoptosis, necroptosis, autophagy, and senescence
  • Angiogenesis and the tumor vasculature
  • Metabolic reprogramming
  • Invasion and metastasis
  • Hallmarks enabled by DNA damage and loss of genomic integrity
  • Hallmarks elicited by inflammation
  • Evading immune destruction
  • Therapeutic targeting of cancer hallmarks

Invited speakers will be announced in September, and conference registration will open in early 2020.
