ID
842338
Dates
24 Jun 2017 - 27 Jun 2017
Location
Florence, Italy
Abstract
Hosted by the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR), the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the Italian Cancer Society (SIC), the EACR-AACR-SIC Special Conference 2017 “The Challenges of Optimising Immuno and Targeted Therapies: From Cancer Biology to the Clinic” will build on the success of the previous conference, which was widely praised for the quality of its programme and inspirational contributions. The conference format is designed to bring together basic, translational and clinical researchers, as well as researchers working on the development of new targeted therapeutics. Leading experts will present the latest achievements of multidisciplinary research dealing with drug action and resistance and highlight challenges that require a concerted multidisciplinary effort.

2nd DNA Replication as a Source of DNA Damage Conference
ID
814115
Dates
03 Jul 2017 - 06 Jul 2017
Location
Rome, Italy
Abstract
The maintenance of genome integrity is critical for the suppression of cancer and premature ageing. Only recently has it become appreciated that DNA replication stress is a crucial driver of genomic instability. The timely progression of replisomes can be disrupted by lesions and secondary structures in the template, by bound proteins and by conflicts with the transcription machinery. A prolonged pause of the replisome then exposes single stranded DNA, which, due to its recombinogenic nature, can lead to genome rearrangements, fragile site expression and cell death. Importantly, some cancers present excessive endogenous levels of replication stress, which can be exploited for their clearance. In this conference, we aim to bring together scientists studying DNA replication and repair, with those interested in how DNA damage can influence cancer and ageing.
