Seed and Soil: Mechanisms of Metastasis

Date & Time October 7-9, 2019
Address Ihnestr. 16-20, 14195
Berlin, Germany
Location Berlin, Germany

We invite you to join us at the 2nd joint EACR-MRS Conference on Seed and Soil: Mechanisms of Metastasis. This is a joint conference organised by the  European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) and Metastasis Research Society (MRS).

Metastasis formation is responsible for over 90% of cancer patient deaths, largely due to the fact that therapies are generally ineffective against detectable metastatic tumors. There is thus a crucial need to mechanistically understand the cellular, tissue and whole-body processes driving metastasis formation in order to identify effective therapeutic strategies. This conference will give an in-depth overview of our current knowledge on cancer, stromal and immune cell centred mechanisms promoting metastasis formation presented by world-leading researchers in the field.

Target audience

The conference will be relevant for lab-based and clinical researchers, as well as those working in industry. We encourage investigators at all levels to attend. The target audience ranges from Masters students to established PIs who have a keen interest in gaining knowledge about mechanisms of metastasis formation.

Topics to be covered

Topics cover (epi)genetic, signaling, immune, microenvironment and metabolic aspects of:

  • Metastasis Initiation
  • Metastasis Formation & Maintenance
  • Targeting Metastasis

Scientific Programme Committee:

  • Janine Erler (co-Chair)
  • Andreas Trumpp (co-Chair)
  • Sarah-Maria Fendt
  • Jonathan Sleeman
