CRSy22 — Champalimaud Research Symposium 2022 (CRSy22): Tumour microenvironment: from cancer initiation to metastasis
19 Oct 2022 - 21 Oct 2022 • Lisbon - hybrid, Portugal
Organizer:
Champalimaud Foundation
Abstract:
Cancer initiation and progression are orchestrated through local and systemic interactions between tumour and tumour-associated cells. A more detailed characterisation of these interactions has so far contributed to a new generation of antitumour strategies and to improved cancer prognosis. However, although we have gained increasing knowledge about the cellular and molecular constituents of tumour-promoting and tumour-suppressing microenvironments, an accurate map delineating the role of each of these constituents remains unavailable. By bringing together experts who have greatly contributed to our understanding of the tumour microenvironment, the Champalimaud Research Symposium 2022 (#CRSy22) will provide access to the most recent developments in basic and clinical research in this complex area. CRSy22 will take the form of a single-track scientific meeting with 18 invited speakers, talks selected from abstracts and 2 poster sessions, among other networking and social activities. The hybrid format will give delegates the option to attend and present their work either in-person or online.

Recombination Mechanisms Conference
10 Jul 2023 - 13 Jul 2023 • Lisbon, Portugal
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
The conference will provide the platform for researchers in the recombination and repair fields to present their new unpublished data that sheds novel insights into not only the mechanisms of DSB repair by recombination, but also the consequences of inaccurate repair leading to cancer. It is now clear that many inheritable cancers, including those linked to defects in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 genes, are caused by defects in homologous recombination. Understanding the precise mechanisms of recombinational repair is therefore critical for the development of new drugs that can target these diseases and improve human health.

2nd Mitochondria Conference
15 Jul 2023 - 18 Jul 2023 • Lisbon, Portugal
Organizer:
Fusion Conferences
Abstract:
Mitochondria act at the interface of numerous processes critical for cellular function and organismal health. Long recognized as the powerhouses of the cell, mitochondria are emerging as hubs for cellular metabolism, redox balance, signalling, gene expression, detoxification, and ion homeostasis. Mitochondrial maintenance is critical for proper development and function of cells and tissues, and mitochondrial dysfunction underlies numerous disease processes ranging from severe childhood mitochondrial disorders, to heart disease, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, and aging itself. This conference will bring together scientists and clinicians with expertise in a breadth of mitochondrial biology to explore topics at the interface of basic and translational biology. Mitochondrial basic mechanisms of organelle regulation, mitochondrial mechanisms of disease, cutting edge technologies, and interventional strategies will be emphasized in interactive scientific sessions.
Abstract submission deadline:
