About the Workshop

Deadline for registration: August 25th, 2008

During tumor progression cells with increasingly malignant phenotypes evolve.

Malignant progression is driven by genetic as well as epigenetic alterations, which are often not very well characterized.

As much progress has recently beeen made in the fields of Developmental Biology, Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology, we will bring together at our workshop leading experts working on highly diverse animal and experimental systems.

We are going to use an interdisciplinary approach to establish connections and common themes, which may be relevant for tumor progression and also tumor therapy

We will bring together leading experts from these fields working on highly diverse animal and experimental systems and use an interdisciplinary approach to establish connections and common themes, which might be relevant for tumor progression and therapy.

   

Sessions Topics:
Lessons from Animal Models:

  • Regeneration, Cell Competition and Proliferative Compensation 

  • Accelerators and Brakes in Tumorigenesis

  • Migration and Invasion at distant Sites

  • Stem Cells and Niches in Development and Cancer

  • Epigenesis and Reprogramming in Development and Cancer
