EACR Goodbye Flat Biology: Next Generation Cancer Models

Date & Time 10–12 October 2023
Location Berlin, Germany

The EACR’s fifth edition of Goodbye Flat Biology will focus on the next generation of cancer models and emerging topics in the areas of cell architecture, mechanobiology, the immune microenvironment, intravital imaging, and high-content analysis for cancer therapeutics. It will seek to emphasise complex 3D model systems that capture the dialogue between cancer cells, the cellular stroma (e.g. fibroblasts, immune cells), and the extracellular matrix, with a focus on how this dialogue affects cancer progression and treatment response. Keynote lectures will be provided by Erik Sahai from the Crick Institute, Matthias Lütolf from EPFL, and Anne Rios from the Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology.

Who should attend?
Faculty, postdocs, and graduate students interested in the techniques and applications of next generation cancer models at the intersection of cancer biology, engineering, and drug development; industry scientists interested in identifying innovative platforms for drug discovery and targets for novel therapies; and journal editors interested in cutting-edge cancer biology and drug discovery research.
