Metabolism and Tumorigenesis
25th Pezcoller Symposium, Trento, Italy
Its program has been formulated by
Dr. William Kaelin (Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, Boston)
Dr. David Livingston (Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston)
Dr. Massimo Loda (Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, Boston)
Dr. Karen Vousden (Beatson Institute, Glasgow)
Dr. Enrico Mihich (Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston)
Tumor cells often reveal complex sets of metabolic abnormalities. Certain metabolic abnormalities in tumors are grounded in the operations of mutant or dysfunctional genes, underscoring the value of these perturbations in the tumorigenesis process. This Symposium will explore key aspects of cancer cell metabolism with an emphasis on understanding the mechanisms that give rise to it, on defining how it serves the survival needs of tumors, on identifying abnormal tumor metabolic phenotypes, and on assessing the potential clinical effects of interfering with these abnormalities.
