26th-29th September, 2018 -“Imaging and therapeutic targeting in cancerology: New advances and trends in preclinical and clinical studies”
The "Tumour targeting & radiotherapies network" of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is pleased to announce its twelfth international workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate, which will take place from the 26th to 29th of September 2018 in Le Bono, West of France.
The 12th international workshop edition entitled “Imaging and therapeutic targeting in cancerology: New advances and trends in preclinical and clinical studies” will focus on state of the art and perspectives in this field, as seen by a multidisciplinary research community composed of biologists, chemists, pharmacists and physicians.
Since several years, many different targeted therapies have been approved for use in cancer treatment like hormone therapies, signal transduction inhibitors, gene expression modulators, apoptosis inducers, angiogenesis inhibitors, immunotherapies. This workshop will focus on delivery molecules as radiolabelled compounds, nanodrugs and antibody drug conjugates. It will explore how to identify the adequate tumour targets in the cell or in the tumour microenvironment, and the potential strategies to reach them. Moreover, we will be interested in follow-up of the targeting by imaging with a special attention to multimodality for imaging and therapy.
To stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 65 persons.
30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers (PhD students and Post-Doctoral scientists).
- Deadline for abstract submission: May 18th, 2018.
- Deadline for registration: June 15th, 2018.
