Cancer Metabolism and the Tumour Microenvironment Conference

Importance of Inflammation and Stromal Cells


09 Nov 2016 - 12 Nov 2016

Paphos, Cyprus

Chairs

Synopsis

Cancer cells recruit normal cells such as endothelial cells, immune cells, adipocytes and fibroblasts, to establish a reactive tumour microenvironment. Researchers are rapidly expanding our knowledge of how cancer and stromal cells communicate, via metabolic changes and inflammation, and establish a symbiotic relationship that supports malignant progression and suppresses anti-tumour immunity.

Throughout the Cancer Metabolism and the Tumour Microenvironment meeting there will be an emphasis placed not only on the mechanisms underlying the metabolic crosstalk established between cancer cells and stromal cells, but also on the impact of context-specific metabolism on cancer development and progression, and on how to therapeutically target these metabolic processes in cancer.

This Cancer Metabolism meeting will bring together diverse researchers from the fields of cancer metabolism and stromal cell biology, providing an opportunity to discuss recent developments and new areas of cross-fertilization between those fields.

The main topics will include:

  • Tumour microenvironment metabolic pathways and tumour progression
  • Metabolism of circulating tumour cells and cancer stem cells
  • Inflammation and cancer initiation
  • Immune microenvironment and tumour progression
  • Targeting metabolism for cancer therapy

Learning Objectives

This Cancer Metabolism conference will cover the major aspects of the metabolic transformation of cancer cells, such as in tumour-initiating cells and circulating tumour cells. The conference will also highlight the role of key stromal cell types, such as cancer-associated fibroblasts and cells of the immune system, emphasising novel therapeutic approaches.

Target Audience 

Researchers and clinicians from the following specialty fields will be expected to attend, such as: cancer biology, translational medicine, cell biology, vascular biology, immunology, inflammation, medicinal chemistry, drug discovery, biomarker discovery, tumour microenvironment, metabolism, cancer stem cells and circulating tumour cells, among other fields.

Location

Paphos is a coastal city in the southwest of Cyprus and the capital of Paphos District. In antiquity, two locations were called Paphos: Old Paphos and New Paphos. The currently inhabited city, New Paphos, lies on the Mediterranean coast, about 50 km (31.07 mi) west of Limassol (the biggest port on the island). 

Paphos is also the mythical birthplace of Aphrodite and is an open air museum of Byzantine churches and Roman ruins interspersed with al fresco restaurants and café bars.

The Annabelle is the closest hotel to Paphos’s picturesque fishing harbour, ancient port and the UNESCO-listed House of Dionysos, containing Cyprus’s world-renowned Roman mosaics.

Paphos International Airport is the country's second-largest airport and is 16 km away from The Annabelle. The drive time is approximately 20 minutes.

Group Activities

Group Activity 1: Paphos Tombs of the Kings – Mosaics – Aphrodite’s Rock

We have arranged an exciting group activity for the 2016 Cancer Metabolism and the Tumour Microenvironment Conference participants. The tour will take place during free time on Thursday 10th November 2016.

Paphos is one of the cities in Cyprus where you can best understand the culture civilizing influence the Roman occupiers made. Here, Greek history and mythology is combined with Roman life art at the time of the emerging Christianity on the island. More than in any other city, the visitor is experiencing cultural history at every turn. One example and an unforgettable experience is one of the most remarkable testimonies of Roman art on the island, the Roman villas with their unique floor mosaics, which will be our first stop. Another interesting site to visit is the Tombs of the Kings. The last stop takes us out of Paphos to the birthplace of Aphrodite – Petra tou Romiouor known also as Aphrodite Rock.

The tour is optional and should you wish to participate we would ask that you email sarah@fusion-conferences.com to confirm your participation no later than Thursday 3rd November 2016 as we are required to confirm numbers in advance in order to arrange appropriate transportation.

Group Activity 2:  Wine Tasting at Chryssogoriatissa Monasteries – Agios Neophytos

We have arranged an exciting group activity for the 2016 Cancer Metabolism and the Tumour Microenvironment Conference participants. The tour will take place during free time on Friday 11th November 2016.

Our first stop will be Chryssogoriatissa monastery, one of the monasteries with excellent wines which you will enjoy tasting. Short after the mid 12th century St. Neophytos lived as a hermit in a secluded area in the north part of Paphos, where today a monastery dedicated to him stands. This is your next visit before driving back to the hotel.

The tour is optional and should you wish to participate we would ask that you email sarah@fusion-conferences.com to confirm your participation no later than Friday 4th November 2016 as we are required to confirm numbers in advance due to transportation requirements.
