EMBO/EMBL Symposia: Defining and Defeating Metastasis

July 19, 2020 - July 22, 2020
EMBL Heidelberg, Germany

This symposium will cover emerging key concepts of latent metastasis and dissemination of tumour cells including evolution and genetic diversity of metastasis, circulating tumour cells, stemness, dormancy and stromal reprogramming, transcriptional and epigenetic control, motility and invasive signalling, metastatic heterogeneity, EMT and plasticity, immune evasion and metabolic adaptations. The meeting will provide unique interdisciplinary exchange on current approaches and future collaborations on metastasis and its therapeutic challenges.

Session Topics
- Metastasis signalling and latency
- Metastasis initiating cells, circulating tumour cells
- Motility and invasion
- Transcriptional and epigenetic control of metastasis
- Metastasis heterogeneity, EMT and plasticity
- Metastasis imaging, tumour microenvironment and immune evasion
