Synopsis

Important fundamental breakthroughs in cancer biology have come from the basic research discovery that defects in the tumor suppressor and DNA repair genes BRCA1/2 genes predispose to breast, ovarian, prostate, and pancreatic cancers. Furthermore, the game-changing synthetic lethality concept for defects with inhibitors to Poly-ADP-Ribose Polymerase 1 (PARP1) is transforming clinical cancer therapy and prompting many new clinical trials. Yet, key gaps in our molecular and mechanistic understanding of therapy efficacy limit our ability to fully harness the insights from DNA damage responses gained so far. In this context, striking ongoing advances in methods and results spanning from molecules to cells and organisms are implicating functionally-important molecular communications coupling the DNA damage response, responses to DNA replication fork instability and DNA-based immune response. Future master keys to cancer biology and advanced therapies will benefit from better defining these distinct cellular stress responses, their mechanistic interconnectivity, and their implications for cancer biology and therapeutic outcomes.

The 6th DNA Repair/Replication Structures & Cancer conference on 14-18 February  2024 will focus on molecular structural and mechanistic insights into dynamic complexes acting in DNA repair, replication, and inflammation and their intersections relevant to advanced cancer therapies. This fundamental information will be pivotal for pioneering research on DNA damage responses as well as for the accurate interpretation of cancer clinical data, design of clinical trials, prognosis, etiology and improving the currently low success rate for oncology drug clinical trials. Informative talks and poster sessions along with vibrant discussions will foster productive interactions, collaborations, and insights. In this conference and this area of science basic research is empowering medical advances and clinical data are unveiling basic relationships in ways that are completely changing how research and translation is being done.

To advance understanding, all presenters are asked to focus on unpublished work, cutting-edge approaches and mechanistic insights. The talks and discussions will seek to aid prediction of biological outcomes and plans to best apply basic research advances for cancer research and treatment. To include late-breakthrough advances and innovative new ideas and methodologies, many talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Poster sessions are vital part of the conference and contribute greatly to the success of the conference with stimulating and in-depth discussions between junior researchers and well-established international leaders in their field. Meeting attendance is limited, and delegates are encouraged to submit applications and abstracts early to avoid disappointment.

What makes this meeting unique? Professor Ben Van Houten from the University of Pittsburgh says: "This conference stands out as the very best due to the amazing science, great speakers, wonderful venue, and Laura and her teams’ attention to every detail." Professor John Tainer from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Centre says: “This conference makes me want to stand up and cheer because most participants contribute unpublished data and useful discussions that together can identify and fill knowledge gaps with potentially game-changing insights.”

Key Sessions

Sessions will include emerging results and breakthrough methodologies on core topics including:

  • Double-Strand Break Repair by homologous recombination, non-homologous end joining, and alternative end joining. 
  • Base and Nucleotide Excision Repair and Mismatch Repair 
  • Replication stress and replication-associated repair 
  • Repair in Mitosis and Meiosis
  • DNA and protein-DNA crosslinking repairs
  • DDR and inflammation in disease and therapeutics 
  • DNA damage response at telomeres 
  • Molecular machines in DNA repair regulation
  • DDR signalling and pathway choices
  • Repair in the chromosome context 
  • New repair mechanisms and methodologies  
  • Transcription-repair interfaces 

We are excited to continue the tradition from the last conference of including a session dedicated to DDR-based cancer therapeutics. This session will highlight new agents and new combined therapies that have recently entered the clinic and the translational potential of emerging mechanistic knowledge at the repair-replication-inflammation axis.

Learning Objectives

Inform basic and clinical researchers on current advances in methodologies, approaches, mechanistic and structural knowledge suitable to understand and predict damage responses and their relationship to cancer. Create optimal formal and informal opportunities to gain new knowledge and to establish fruitful collaborations among key stakeholders in damage responses and cancer research.

Educational Need

This conference will bring together basic and clinical scientists working at the forefront of DNA repair, replication, inflammation, and post-translational modification including PARylation for cancer biology and medicine. Presentations will consider diverse cutting-edge methodologies and integrated approaches to investigate the structures and mechanisms of dynamic protein, chromatin, DNA and RNA complexes. The conference will showcase breakthrough advances and new developments in these areas. It will furthermore provide opportunities for industry and academia to consider and exchange emerging results in this exciting, rapidly advancing arena. The inter-disciplinary nature of the presented work will create strong synergies among participants and outstanding opportunities for exchanging information and developing fruitful collaborations. The cross-disciplinary interactions will be invaluable training for young scientists to work in these and other emerging areas of science.

Target Audience

Academic and industrial researchers (including established and junior principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows and PhD students) interested in DNA damage responses, replication, inflammation, and their intersection with cancer biology and cancer drug discovery. The focus will be the molecular mechanisms of and interfaces controlling damage responses and cancer biology and thereby impacting therapeutic outcomes.

Location

Cancun is a delightful combination of natural beauty, islands, ecological reserves and white sandy beaches. However, besides sun, sand and sea, this destination also offers an infinite variety of underwater activities to choose from: the diving, snorkelling and fishing here are outstanding and you will find an undersea world packed with tropical fish that live on the second largest barrier reef in the world. Sports enthusiasts might choose one of the many eco-tourism activities, such as cycling or hiking through the tropical forest or kayaking through mangroves, or something a little more adventuresome, like zip lining through the treetops.

Apart from the more well-known ancient Mayan archealogical sites such as Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá you may like to visit the Aktun Chen caverns, voted one of the Top 10 underwater walks by National Geographic described as a truly magical experience.

Transportation

Taxi

Unlike other Airports, Cancun Airport Taxi Services must be pre-arranged. To obtain safe, licensed and bilingual transportation services please ensure you book your ground transportation online with an authorised transportation company prior to your arrival.

If you wish to share a return transfer to the airport then we would suggest waiting and organising this on-site at the hotel. The hotel have registered Taxi's readily available- you simply need to speak to the Concierge/Bellmen on the day of your departure. This will allow attendees to share return transfers where flight times permit.   

Approximate Taxi Fare

One way (Cancun Hotel Zone): $24.85+ (USD) 
*
subject to change, please check the Cancun International Airport website for a more accurate estimation for your trip.

Further information on Taxi services can be found on the Cancun International Airport website (see below link) along with some top tips for travellers from local experts and official authorities. 

https://www.cancunairport.com/taxi.html 

** Please note that Fusion Conferences is not responsible for any bookings made with any transfer/taxi service as transportation is not included within the registration package **

Private Transfers

If you'd prefer to book a private transfer, there are several DMC's operating in the Cancun area who will be able to provide a quotation for your trip. We have not partnered with any companies this year, however, there are a number of well reviewed companies operating in Cancun, such as; USA TransfersCanada Transfers and Kalido Travel.
