EMBO Workshop — The many faces of cancer evolution
20 May 2022 - 22 May 2022 • Rimini , Italy
European Molecular Biology Organization – EMBO
Research in the last few years has focused on the emergence and selection of genetic variants affecting protein functions. However, coding genes represent 2% of the human genome, tumor cells exhibit a wide variety of non-genetic (or epigenetic) alterations, and aberrant transcriptional programs ultimately determine cancer cell phenotypes. The role of the non-coding genome and epigenetic and transcriptional heterogeneity are only now emerging as alternative fuel for tumour evolution, sustained by technological advances to explore tumour heterogeneity at single cell and spatial resolution. This EMBO Workshop will bring together an interdisciplinary community of scientists with the goal of facilitating discussion and collaborations around genetic and non-genetic mechanisms of cancer evolution. The primary objective is to expand the current genetic-centric view with a mechanistic perspective centred around transcriptional and epigenetic alterations.

Liquid Biopsies
24 May 2022 - 26 May 2022 • Bergamo, Italy
European Association For Cancer Research (ECAR)
This EACR Conference, the second on the topic following a sold-out 2019 edition, will provide a comprehensive overview of liquid biopsies in cancer. It will cover what is already in clinical practice, what is on the horizon for liquid biopsies in cancer patient management and the latest new techniques for high sensitivity profiling of solid tumors in the blood. This meeting aims to develop our understanding of the potential of liquid biopsies. This includes to support early detection of cancer; as prognostic, pharmacodynamic and predictive biomarkers of treatment efficacy and resistance; and for patient monitoring, including of minimal residual disease for early identification of disease relapse. It will also explore how liquid biopsies can be incorporated in cancer patient management and how implementation of liquid biopsies can change clinical practice.
