Dissecting metabolic circuitries in cancer cells and microenvironment:

how to learn from bad lessons to develop new therapeutic opportunities

The tumor cell and its microenvironment, including the stroma, the vascular component and the immune infiltrate, are linked by multiple cross talks that allow the adaptation of the cancer cells to unfavorable conditions, such as hypoxia, nutrient deprivation, cytotoxicity induced by radiotherapy and chemotherapy, host’s immune system recognition.

In this meeting, internationally recognized speakers will discuss the complexity of the metabolic changes that occur during tumor transformation, progression, and acquisition of resistance to therapy. The metabolic circuits established between the tumor cell and the microenvironment, leading to the selection of more aggressive and resistant clones, will be dissected and analyzed, with the final goal to identify new predictive and prognostic biomarkers for patient’s stratification and new therapeutic targets.

Recently, genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics have significantly improved the diagnostic accuracy and the therapeutic approach to the oncological patients, increasingly leading to personalized diagnoses and treatments. The metabolomics is an indispensable complement to the other “omic” techniques, if integrated with “omic” and single-cell imaging, flow-cytometry or molecular-biology-based assays, currently used at preclinical and clinical levels.

In the era of high-throughput techniques at the service of biomedical research and precision medicine, great importance will be given to the most innovative technologies that allow the metabolic mapping of each cancer and/or the generation of in vitro metabolic “avatars” of the individual patient, to make the stratification procedure and the efficacy of therapeutic treatment more and more accurate. The most relevant brands in the field will be present at the meeting, illustrating the latest innovations in a dedicated technical session.

We believe that the meeting will be highly attractive for a broad spectrum of scientists, working in basic and translational research, as well as in clinic units. Besides the presence of world-class speakers, the AICC meeting continues its long tradition of involving your researchers, dedicating slots for oral communications and posters. The best works presented by young scientists will be awarded by special prizes.

forward to seeing you all!
