35° PEZCOLLER SYMPOSIUM: June 24-25, 2024

Trento, Italy
Humanities Department, University of Trento (via Tommaso Gar 14)

CANCER AS A SYSTEMIC DISEASE:
INTERACTIONS BETWEEN TUMOR AND HOST


PROGRAM

Organised by the Pezcoller Foundation Scientific Standing Committee, chaired by Dr. William G. Kaelin

FOCUS AND GOALS
Interactions between cancer cells and host cells, both locally and at a distance, can positively or negatively affect tumor growth. Cancer cells, in turn, cause many local and systemic effects (e.g. paraneoplastic effects) that profoundly influence patient morbidity and mortality. New tools have emerged for monitoring the ways that cancer cells “communicate” with their hosts and vice versa. Moreover, therapies that target host-cancer interactions, such as angiogenesis inhibitors and immunotherapies, are now clinically validated. 
Topics to be included in this symposium include local interactions between cancer cells and host cells, recognition of cancer cells by the immune system (including the influence of the microbiome), paraneoplastic effects of cancer cells, and new cancer models to study heterotypic cancer cell interactions.
