31st Pezcoller Symposium
Trento, Italy; June 17-18, 2019

CANCER AS CORRUPTED TISSUE


Co-Organizers: Alberto Bardelli, Cathrin Brisken, David Livingston, Massimo Loda, Stefano Piccolo, Maria Rescigno


Focus and Goals: Cancers are, in essence, products of organ and tissue development gone wrong. In fact, many critical cellular and organ-based operations from genome integrity, the behavior of one’s own microbiome, oxygen utilization and cell metabolism, orderly tissue and organ anatomy, disciplined cell behavior, and the immune response may become disordered in the interest of tumor development. In this year’s Symposium, the focus will be on the newest insights into the processes that give rise to cancer tissue and its persistence. Also included will be recent findings that have the potential to influence clinical cancer therapeutics in novel ways.
